Starting Saturday, August 22, I will be co-teaching a year-long Institute with the MN Writing Project on Whiteness and Antiracism. It meets monthly for two hours all year. There is so much going on right now with COVID-19. It is a tough time for teachers. It is also an urgent time to address race more effectively and a strategic time to create a new normal in schools.
The class is intended to provide practical guidance for creating antiracist lessons, for facilitating productive (and not shame-based) conversations about race, and for deepening our own antiracism as adults.
If you know of teachers who might be interested or administrators looking to support their teachers in anti-racist work, please help spread the word! The class is online, so anyone can participate! Admin gets a discount for sending a crew, and scholarships are available!
