Educators who are interested in continuing along an antiracist path must recognize that racialization has harmed White students and Students of Color. Traditional curriculum has provided inaccurate messages about their identities, history, and understanding of the damage the social construct of race inflicts on society. Building on the content of the book Open Windows, Open Minds: Developing Antiracist, Pro-Human Students, this webinar will offer an approach to teaching and learning that can equip White teachers and students as informed, empathetic, inclusive, racially and historically literate global citizens who genuinely value diversity and will actively engage in dismantling systemic inequities.
Participants can expect to:
– Learn about the benefits of engaging in racial healing work
– Learn how to provide White students with more windows and more accurate mirrors
– Learn about instructional shifts that can equip White students with the learning experiences needed to engage in systemic change
