During this dynamic 4-week course which includes 4 synchronous sessions & 2 office hour sessions, we will work to demystify many of the complex theories educators are asked to apply including: anti-racism, colonialism, disability justice, queer theory, radical inclusion and others while considering what these transformative and critical theories might look like in reality.
Apply these theories and learnings to one of your own lessons or units with the support of our team and your peers. Leave with skills--rather than a series of techniques--in how to work towards a humanizing and inclusive classroom.
LGBTQIA+ advocacy is anti-racist work. This June, The Institute for Anti-Racist Education is thrilled to host the panel discussion “Creating Loving & Affirming Schools for LGBTQIA+ Students.” We know that ongoing anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation and restrictive curriculum policies threaten the safety of LGBTQIA+ students and drastically limit their learning experience, as well as those of their classmates. In celebration of Pride Month, this panel will focus on the importance of going beyond inclusion to affirmation with LGBTQIA+ school-based supports. The panel will feature classroom educators and policy advocates who will share their visions for truly loving and affirming schools and explore the steps and strategies needed to create them into being.Register Here
