"That book. It was about two women, and they fell in love with each other.” And then Lily asked the question that had taken root in her, that was even now unfurling its leaves and demanding to be shown the sun: "Have you ever heard of such a thing?” Seventeen-year-old Lily Hu can't remember exactly when the question took root, but the answer was in full bloom the moment she and Kathleen Miller walked under the flashing neon sign of a lesbian bar called the Telegraph Club.

America in 1954 is not a safe place for two girls to fall in love, especially not in Chinatown. Red-Scare paranoia threatens everyone, including Chinese Americans like Lily. With deportation looming over her father-despite his hard-won citizenship-Lily and Kath risk everything to let their love see the light of day.

Location: TBD

We have all been hearing and reading about the ways in which we should prepare our students to effectively participate in "difficult discussions." But before we can engage our kiddos in these conversations in respectful and productive ways, it's crucial that we, the adults in the room, are able to "walk the talk." This workshop will provide participants with the basic concepts, effective protocols and practices that are essential to successfully engaging in conversations around controversial and uncomfortable topics. This workshop is a *suggested pre-requisite* for the follow-up session on "Difficult Discussions in the Classroom: Successful Navigation around Hot Topics." Meeting Location TBD

Program: School Improvement

Audience: All educators and staff grades PK-12

Dates: 9/22/2021

Meeting Times: 4:00pm-5:00pm

New
"May you live in interesting times." Well, we surely do, but interesting can quickly become exhausting. Maybe it's politics, or the current state of education, or a serious medical diagnosis, or someone's irritating behavior - the list of topics considered "elephants in the room" is extensive. It's human nature to avoid difficult conversations, partly because they're difficult and partly because we're worried that having them could make things worse. But when we continue to dodge these conversations frustration sets in, communication narrows, tensions rise, trust evaporates and collaboration is done. And we're talking about ADULTS here. Before we can safely lead our kiddos through the choppy waters of difficult discussions in the classroom, we first must learn how to courageously-and safely- confront that elephant ourselves. This is a 2-part series that will: 1) provide participants with protocols and strategies to help you make those uncomfortable conversations with peers go more smoothly, and 2) build upon these strategies so you may successfully facilitate difficult discussions in the classroom. It is suggested that you attend both parts of this series to get the most out of the information and practice offered. Readings will be assigned ZOOM and/In Person TBD

Program: School Improvement

Audience: Educators 6-8, Educators 9-12, Teacher Assistants

Dates: 9/28/2021

Meeting Times: 4:00pm-5:00pm

New
Your students are affected by social, political, and other topics both in and outside of school, and often bring up difficult issues in class. The diversity of ideas, perspectives and experiences of students can present unique opportunities and challenges for respectful dialogue within the classroom. Sometimes these conversations can become high-stakes - where the combination of divergent opinions and high-running emotions create challenges for maintaining a safe and positive learning environment. As an educator, it's both necessary and important to guide your students through challenging discussions. Although they can be difficult at times, productive conversations about these topics can help students come to a deeper understanding of and respect for those with perspectives different from their own. Participants will be offered strategies and protocols that will help to cultivate an atmosphere of mutual respect and support so that every every student feels comfortable when engaging in these conversations. This workshop builds on the practices discussed in Part 1 of this 2 part series, and participants are advised to attend both workshops in order to derive the full benefit of both. Credit will be granted based on attendance at each workshop. Meeting location TBD

This workshop seeks to help teachers feel more confident leading difficult discourse by encouraging reflection on how such discussions connect with larger learning goals, and by providing specific strategies and resources that teachers can use to create more productive conversations in their classrooms. "Can We Talk?: Doing Difficult Discussions" is a suggested pre-requisite for this workshop. Synchronous ZOOM or In-Person session TBD
