Program: Professional Development

Dates: 11/14/2017 to 12/5/2017

New
Ali Michael's Raising Race Questions: Whiteness and Inquiry in Education is a powerful book that provides a springboard for conversing on racism. In order to build a climate where race conversations and discussions become agents of change, we should immerse ourselves in learning experiences that will positively inform these conversations about race.

How do we launch robust conversations in school communities? Simply put, Americans must begin talking together about race. Yet, for most, talking about racism is uncomfortable. We avoid conversations in schools for fear of saying or doing the wrong thing or appearing racist. This fear drives out the opportunities in schools and classrooms to engage in constructive opportunities to talk about race. Our response to racism in our schools must be clear and compassionate. We all have something of value to add to a community discussion on racism.

This class is open to MCPASD Staff Only
