Earlier this week, we read this important piece by Anya Kamenetz titled “Resources For Educators To Use In The Wake Of Charlottesville.” As she points out, many teachers began sharing resources online hours after the attack. She asks the question, “How should educators confront bigotry, racism, and white supremacy?” She also shares great resources and advice, we recommend reading her piece and following the hashtag #CharlottesvilleCurriculum. Greg Toppo from USA Today also wrote about the challenges educators will face as students return to school.
As both articles point out, there are great resources available to help educators, including:
- Facing History and Ourselves
- Southern Poverty Law Center
- This great Google document from @JulieBoulton12
- This article from the Washington Post: “Teaching about race, racism and police violence: Resources for educators and parents” – originally published in December 2014
We are committed to continue celebrating diversity and tolerance and invite you to use our resources at Genius Plaza.
We invite others to share resources in the comments section and continue to follow #CharlottesvilleCurriculum.
