Let's Talk about Race: Using Literature to Plan for and Respond to Critical Conversations in Classrooms

With Andrea Glaws & Kirsten Musetti Tivaringe, CU Boulder School of Education doctoral students 

This workshop will take place remotely, via Zoom. 

This event is part of a reading series collaboration with the School of Education in which faculty and graduate students are invited to draw from their own research/teaching experience. Presenters bring a wealth of educational scholarship. Please access and read the materials below before attending.

Session Description: This session creates a space to explore ways in which educators can plan for crucial, critical conversations in the classroom about race. Together, we’ll commit to engaging in race talk and “Letting Go of Literary Whiteness" by embracing discomfort as growth. While acknowledging the realities of common challenges of enacting anti-racist pedagogy in schools, proactive and reactive strategies for engaging in classroom conversations around race will be shared. We welcome participants in higher education, as well as K-12 educators. 

Pre-reading material:
