The goal of the presentation is to highlight aspects of materials, methods, and activities for effective undergraduate student learning of social justice themes in general education geography courses, while appraising strengths and shortcomings of selected print and non-print pedagogic content. The presentation draws on successful learning and teaching approaches that address ongoing issues of racism or other forms of prejudice and discrimination while noting that resources for teaching about geography, ethnicity-race and social justice vary in appropriateness and quality. Undergraduate students enrolled in compulsory General Education geography courses create a poster illustrating course content for meaningful engagement in transformational learning about social justice, pluralism, equity and inclusion.
