This session will take a deep dive into the history of the American school system and look at the evolution of education and the way in which our curriculum, behavior management, social and emotional practices, and cultural competency haven’t changed. Participants will audit their classroom and school systems to identify how systemic racism appears in their reality.
This product is designed for teachers, leaders, and administrators that are looking to understand what systemic racism is and explore the different ways systemic racism shows up to collectively work towards dismantling these inequitable systems.
I evaluate the role I play in challenging systems of inequity in my classroom.
In this section participants will reflect and analyze educational history, to identify what systemic racism is, and how it has manifested in some key areas.
In this section, we scaffold the act of analyzing and reimagining a racist system by looking at a different school. We establish a few key ‘systems’ that can serve as examples for participants to prioritize as they begin to engage with a system at hand.
In this section, participants have a chance to identify a system, and collaborate to reflect on its adverse effects, and how they can reimagine that system.
