This course is designed as a facilitated discussion of the text. Participants are responsible for purchasing their own text. Please have pages 3-34 (Intro, Ch. 1, & Ch. 2) read before our first session on July 15th. "Antiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racism-and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. At its core, racism is a powerful system that creates false hierarchies of human value; its warped logic extends beyond race, from the way we regard people of different ethnicities or skin colors to the way we treat people of different sexes, gender identities, and body types. Racism intersects with class and culture and geography and even changes the way we see and value ourselves. In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of antiracist ideas-from the most basic concepts to visionary possibilities-that will help readers see all forms of racism clearly, understand their poisonous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves. Kendi weaves an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science with his own personal story of awakening to antiracism. This is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.

    Program: Office of School Improvement - CTLE Approved Sponsor

    Audience: K-5 Classroom Teachers, Librarians

    Dates: 11/18/2020

    New
    Critical literacy is a theoretical lens that considers students' diverse cultural knowledge and focuses on social issues, making sense of the sociopolitical systems at play as well as questioning those systems. Using Lewison, Flint, and Van Sluys (2002) four dimensions of critical literacy: 1) disrupting the commonplace, 2) interrogating multiple perspectives, 3) focusing on sociopolitical issues, and 4) taking action and promoting social justice, teachers will learn how to create a critical literacy taxonomy to help them develop activities, questions, and lessons. In this session, we will explore what critical literacy is and learn a critical literacy taxonomy that teachers can easily use to plan lessons and units. Teachers will learn about an ecology of critical literacy which involves discussing the importance of identifying teachers' biases and assumptions, creating a classroom community for tough talk, and doing a curriculum audit to see what areas they might be able to integrate critical literacy. Sample lessons will be shared; ideas on how to talk about race, gender, class through read-alouds, and how to create activities across content areas to solicit critical literacy responses. Teachers will participate in various activities and practice talk and lesson plan ideas around certain topics and picture books. Resources will be shared of books that could be used in the classroom. (8:00 -8:30 registration; 8:30-3:00 program) Plan B in case of school closure: 2 webinars on November 18th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and December 9th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Zoom codes will be emailed to participants 1 hour prior to the start of webinars.
