How did ideas about race and racism become part of the American social and political fabric? What is unique about discussing this history in a Jewish educational context? Core to Facing History and Ourselves is the examination of themes related to identity and membership. In this webinar, we will examine the historical legacy of racism and its challenging realities in our contemporary lives, and help teachers acquire tools for facilitating discussion on this topic within Jewish educational settings.
During this webinar, we will:
Explore contemporary issues of race and racism while connecting to the historical legacies of prejudice and discrimination in the United States.
Discuss the relevance and potential challenges of raising conversations about race and racism in Jewish educational contexts.
Develop a framework for facilitating respectful classroom discussions on topics of race in a way that invites personal reflection and critical analysis.
