Strategies & Tools for Anti-Racist Instruction

Educators are acutely aware of the impact systemic racism has in our schools and are uniquely positioned to create immediate, positive change. This course is designed to introduce you to curated anti-racism resources, support your own anti-racist learnings, help you discover innovative ways to integrate anti-racism principles into your curriculum, and amplify the voices and experiences of black and brown students. The course culminates with a sensible action plan to make sure students in Wisconsin’s public schools are learning in anti-racist classrooms led by anti-racist educators.

 

Change happens when we develop deep awareness and understanding and also have practical tools to combat structural racism. By not taking action we are continuing to uphold a racist system that harms all students. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Our lives begin to end the day we are silent about things that matter.”

 

We will not be silent. Every Wisconsin student deserves an anti-racist school.
