Shout out to all the folks attending NTAC 2019 this year. Here are a few resources you will find helpful in the work of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Books, Conferences, Bell Schedules, Flexible Seating, and White Supremacy Culture. Oh my.
Resources for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Anti-Racism
I can see the New Tech Network is working to include more equity and social justice into their supports. I saw a glimpse of this last year 2018 Conference in St. Louis. Here is my reflection from last year. I am hoping for more this year, and excited to present a workshop on PBL, Social Justice, and Culturally Responsive Teaching.
Are you looking for Anti-Racist Books and Equity Conferences? Look no further!
Think students of color aren’t ready for PBL? You NEED to read this article to dispel 6 racist myths about PBL and the Hood.
Is Project Based Learning also Culturally Responsive Teaching? Yes it can be.
Redesigning Bell Schedules, Design Thinking, and Hacking Classroom Furniture
If you really want to go deeper than diversity, you should look at White Supremacy Culture in your school, classrooms, organization, and district. Truthfully, you need to start here!
Feeling a little triggered, or uncomfortable? Take a look at my 4 part series on White Fragility and what we can all do about it. Then continue.
Interested in hearing about equity and social justice from an actual person of color? Check out this book, We Want To Do More Than Survive, by Bettina Love. I am hosting a twitter chat on July 25th.
I got to visit 3 NTN Schools doing big thangs in El Paso, Texas a few months ago. Read the review here:
