About the Event

Event Link: 

A workshop for white teachers and administrators who understand that race matters in the classroom, but who still feel uncomfortable talking and engaging with racial topics, especially across racial difference. To better understand our own perspective, we will explore what it means to be “white” and why it matters. We will explore the concept of managing “racial stress” and what to do when we start to feel overwhelmed. We will discuss why being colorblind is not a solution, what language is appropriate to use, how stereotypes influence everyone, and how we can be more conscious of our own biases in the classroom to ensure we are effective teachers for all students.
