Please join us for the fourth session in workshop series focused on anti-racism and practical strategies for exploring race with students. In this workshop series, local teachers will thoughtfully share, discuss & practice teaching strategies that will help students dismantle racism in their schools, communities and lives.
On the agenda this month will be: children's books about race, code-switching (home language vs. academic language activity), restorative justice circles, social justice vocabulary, and a discussion of the challenges teachers encounter when teaching about race in the classroom.
While all educators are welcome to join this inquiry to action group, these workshops are particularly focused on PK-12 educators currently in classrooms or working with students as we will be sharing about our current practices and working together to plan and implement new classroom strategies. We encourage all participants to consider bringing resources to share with the group (books, lesson plans, etc.).
Special notes on workshop location: We will be meeting in Peck Hall 2410 at SIUe (this is next to Lovejoy Library). Parking is free on Saturdays. For more detailed directions to this location, check the following website:
