Let’s Do It! Anti-racist Pedagogy in the Classroom

May 12 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

NJEA and Make Us Visible, NJ present...

Event Description

Assimilation has been the modus operandi in the American classroom. Educators often don’t recognize the corrosive effect this has on the identity formation of young people. In this interactive lesson, educators will use three critical lenses described by Ibram X. Kendi in his book How To Be an Antiracist–assimilationist, segregationist, and antiracist to read, recognize, and gain insight into the tensions between and among these social assumptions in sample poems. A reading list of K-12 AAPI literature will be provided.
