1. Series on Seeing White

Program: Professional Development

Dates: 10/18/2018 to 5/30/2019

Starting Soon
Goal: In a mostly White district, with colleagues who are nearly all White, this series is meant to get to the heart of matters of race, explore the concept of "whiteness," and then transfer this to our work here in the MCPASD. Our primary goal is to develop positive racial identities as anti-racists. In turn, we hope to promote anti-racist action in all aspects of our life and work to the best of our abilities.

Format: We will use a podcast series from Scene on Radio called, "Seeing White," along with a blended model for ongoing learning bimonthly throughout the 2018-19 School Year. The BUZZ learning platform will serve as a space for dialogue on reflection questions meant to prime the pump for our face-to-face sessions. Those will take place mainly in a circle format every other week for approximately 45 minutes.

Points: Due to the sensitive nature of the topics being discussed, it is vital that we build a strong community and have consistency among participants. As such, all participants are expected to attend every session. If a participant cannot make it to a session due to an illness or emergency, the participant is expected to submit an online journal reflection and engage in any online discussion.

The course in its entirety is worth 38 points (8.5 hours of podcast listening outside of class plus 10.5 hours of face-to-face class time, doubled because it is equity-related PD).
