While many of us are interested in promoting equity for all learners within spaces of schooling, we may need additional tools for doing so. In this course, we will engage within a brave space as we learn about equity, racism & antiracism, intersectionality, white supremacy, and tools for inclusion, particularly related to literacy and assets-based, humanizing pedagogies. This course will include relevant content, along with opportunities for discussion and synthesis with our own contexts within both synchronous learning times and independent, asynchronous study (which will take place in between the two live sessions).
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Define equity, racism, and antiracism
- Describe the cause of racism, racial inequity, and racist policy
- Experience the power of children’s literature in promoting equity and making space for humanizing conversations
- Discuss and apply intersectionality with various identity markers, including our own
- Explore tools that provide equity, access, anti-racism, & inclusion for all
- Reimagine equity-centered schooling moving forward
