Resources for Having Difficult Classroom Conversations Regarding Socio-Political Events
The resources on the Google doc linked below have all been recommended by fellow teachers for classroom use. It will continue to be updated as new resources are created and shared.
We encourage you all to address current events regarding racial injustice, homophobia, ableism, discrimination, and other issues of social justice/injustice with both your students as well as your colleagues!
People We Love to Learn From!
We love using social media to learn more about how to be better equity-minded anti-racist educators and accomplices. Please consider following the individuals below to learn more during your free time!
**Also remember that contributing tangibly (i.e. monetary donations) to someone's work acknowledges the time and effort someone puts into educating and providing/creating resources. None of these people are required to share what they know or make, but they do anyways! Most of these creators have also links to their Venmo/CashApp in their bios or provide additional resources via Patreon, which is a pay-to-access subscription-type platform.
