Teacher, Know Thyself: Grow Your Racial Literacy, Decolonize Behavioral Support (Part 2)

March 9 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In part two of this workshop series, participants will build on their growing schema for growing their racial literacy by applying this knowledge to their own classrooms. Moving from small- and whole-group discussions to hands-on project work, teacher-participants will re-imagine their spaces as seen through more racially-literate lenses. Participants will take a critical eye to their classrooms and ask questions such as:

  • Which aspects of the classroom’s physical space reflect ideological or institutional oppression?
  • How might the behavioral support systems I’ve adopted reflect the white gaze in education and how can I begin again with an anti-bias, anti-racist, anti-ableist lens?
  • Do my behavioral support systems value students’ voices equally or are some voices marginalized and penalized unfairly?

At the conclusion of this 2nd installment of a two-part series, attendees will leave with a tangible “beginning-again plan,” which can function as a roadmap for transforming their classrooms into anti-racist spaces that employ justice-driven behavioral approaches.

NOTE: Collaborative members use only one Trainings & Workshop (TW) seat to attend this two-part series.
