Teaching for Equity and Justice

Across the country, educators and administrators are acknowledging that schools themselves—both the practice of schooling and the outcomes students are achieving—are not equitable across lines of race and class. Facing History and Ourselves has designed a professional development model to help educators address these troubling and historically rooted disparities.

Our vision is to support educators and school leaders both individually and collectively as they move to more equitable practices that enable all students to find their voice and civic agency, become critical thinkers, and be fully engaged in their education. During this two-day online experience, educators will examine moments in the history of American education and its current legacies of inequity, gaining in the process the tools necessary to mitigate against these barriers to equity.

In this online seminar, participants will:

  • Explore the history of race, schooling, and academic identity to better understand the root causes of present-day educational inequities.
  • Engage with contemporary scholarship and gain tools to address these historical legacies in your school context. 

Taking place over two days, this seminar offers a real-time, interactive online classroom where participants will connect in facilitated whole- and small-group sessions.
