This one-hour webinar will guide you through our unit Discussing Race and Racism in the Classroom, which has been designed to help teachers have conversations with their students about race in a safe, sensitive and constructive way.
It will explore activities that can help students grapple with the concept of race and how it came to exist, address racism and its impact, and explore their role in shaping a society in which everyone can thrive.
The unit is focused around these fundamental questions:
- How do we discuss race in a brave and constructive way?
- How can learning about the concept of race and the impact of racism help us challenge racism?
- How do we address and understand the impact of racist and dehumanising language?
- How can we ensure that everyone in our society is able to thrive?
