Step Back. Step Forward. A White Educator’s Steps Toward Antiracist Teaching
As a white educator, I believe it is important for white teachers and leaders to develop antiracist practices and policies that ensure meaningful and sustainable change for our students, our colleagues, and our schools. In this session we will call each other in, not call each other out. We will examine tools to help us have safe, open, and honest conversations about the equity work we can do in our classrooms. I will share resources I use and lessons I have created. One goal is that participants will feel empowered with new tools, strategies, and ideas.
