How to Talk About Race in the Classroom

Saturday, 11/17
1:45 pm to 3:15 pm

What do you say when a child asks you an unexpected question about race? How might that question become a teachable race moment? Border Crossers invites you to participate in an exciting workshop for educators seeking tools to talk about race and equity with children. This is not a lecture or a presentation ? we use adult learning techniques and participatory theater to collectively discuss race?s role in our lives, share personal experiences of critical moments, develop strategies for confidently and effectively entering into conversations about race in the classroom and practice what to say when tough situations arise.
