This event is for teachers, school leaders, parents, and caregivers alike! Join us and award-winning educator and author Liz Kleinrock to learn strategies for supporting and connecting with adolescents as they develop their sense of identity, agency, and belonging.

Together, we will explore how educators and families can work together to reduce bias and isolation among young people. Liz will share anecdotes and guidance for teachers on taking parents and caregivers into account when broaching topics related to identity, bias, and racism in the classroom. Likewise, parents and caregivers will receive tips and resources for engaging respectfully with teachers and supporting their teens’ identity development and social-emotional wellbeing. The talk will be followed by a Q&A with the audience, moderated by Facing History Senior Program Associate Lauren Boccia.

Automated captioning will be provided during this event. This event will be recorded and made available on-demand.

This is the second installment of our Combating Bullying & Bias speaker series, hosted by Making Caring Common, a project of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Facing History & Ourselves. The series is sponsored by The Choose Kindness Project.
