A HANDS-ON WORKSHOP FOR EDUCATORS

What do you say when a child asks you a difficult question about race?

How do you create a culture of dialogue around race in your classroom?

ABOUT  THE WORKSHOP

Talking about race and racism can be difficult. Educators often struggle to have equity-centered conversations about race with their students.

 

Border Crossers invites you to participate in an interactive day of professional development for educators seeking tools and language to address race in the classroom. This is not a lecture or a presentation – we use interactive activities to collectively discuss  the role of race in our lives, share personal experiences of critical moments with students, and develop strategies for confidently and effectively interrupting patterns of racial  inequity in our schools.

 

Through this workshop, participants will:

 

•   Explore race and structural racism

•   Apply a racial equity analysis to real-world scenarios

•   Develop tools for entering into tough conversations with students

•   Practice strategies and collaboratively skill-build!

ABOUT  BORDER CROSSERS

Border Crossers trains and equips  educators to be leaders  of racial justice  in their schools and communities. We believe that if educators are prepared to have meaningful conversations about identity and equity, students will be able interrupt patterns of racism and injustice in their  own  lives and thrive in a multicultural society.
