SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY: Talking About Race in the Classroom and Community
Saturday, March 18, 2017 @ 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM
In the current climate, we as educators play a unique role in nurturing a racially equitable learning environment for our participants. Join New York’s Border Crossers for this intensive training about strategies to recognize and address racism in your classroom and community.
Through this training, teaching artists will:
- Strengthen their analysis of how racism manifests itself in educational settings;
- Enhance their understanding of how racism affects children
- Practice using tools and language to address race and racism in the classroom
- Gain strategies to support a culture of respect, equity and inclusivity
This is not a lecture or a presentation – Border Crossers uses interactive theater and adult learning techniques to collectively discuss the role of race in our lives, share personal experiences of critical moments with students, develop strategies for confidently and effectively entering into conversations about race in the classroom and practice what to say when tough situations arise.
Because of the planning and expense for Bartol to present this workshop, please only register for this event if you can commit to attend the entire day. If you sign up, you must show up.
Lunch will be provided.
