In the midst of the recent racial justice movement, it is important to consider how antiracist teaching can contribute to an inclusive classroom environment. As Ibram Kendi writes in How to be an Antiracist, “There is no neutrality in the racism struggle.” As such, this session will offer strategies and resources for prioritizing representation for BIPOC students (black, Indigenous, and people of color), facilitating challenging conversations that may arise from antiracist teaching, and dismantling racial hierarchies that impede student success.
For more information, see our Antiracist Pedagogy resource page.
After successfully completing this workshop you will be able to:
- Recognize antiracism as a framework for inclusive teaching and learning
- Understand the pedagogical effects of microaggressions and unconscious bias
- Learn strategies to facilitate difficult conversations in the classroom
- Identify resources for future antiracist practice
