Lessons From Literature in Daily Practice: a Discussion

Recent uprisings for racial justice have highlighted the need to reorganize our educational spaces, but too many of us lack spaces for reflecting and incorporating this work into our teaching. This “pop up community of practice” will be a co-learning space for us to use James Baldwin’s thought-provoking essay A Talk to Teachers to explore issues in our classrooms, schools and educational programs. The goal is to walk away having learned something from each other about how to implement racial justice practices in our educational setting. Participation is limited to 15. This workshop meets online eastern time.
