How do we have conversations about race or racism with our students? How do we ensure racial equity in our classrooms and schools?
ABOUT THE TRAINING
Border Crossers believes that each teacher has a unique opportunity to nurture a racially equitable learning environment for children.
Through this training, educators will:
- Strengthen their analysis of how racism manifests in our schools and classrooms
- Enhance their understanding of how racism affects children
- Practice using tools and language to address race and racism in the classroom
- Gain strategies to support a schoolwide culture of respect, equity, and inclusivity
Border Crossers invites you to participate in a powerful day of professional development for educators seeking to deepen their capacity to engage in conversations about race in K-12 educational settings.
This is not a lecture or a presentation – we use interactive theater and adult learning techniques to collectively discuss the role of race in our lives, share personal experiences of critical moments with students, develop strategies for confidently and effectively entering into conversations about race in the classroom and practice what to say when tough situations arise.
Lunch will be provided
