Tools for Teaching in a Climate of Classroom Censorship – Webinar
Held Wednesday, August 24, 2022, at 4:30 am to 5:30 pm CT
Educators across the country are committed to making sure students receive a strong, truthful education in our public schools. But vague classroom censorship policies and their residual chilling effects in multiple states, aim to shut down free expression in schools. As a result, students stand to be completely unprepared to engage in thoughtful discussions of real-world issues and solutions.
IDRA recently launched a new resource hub designed for educators, families and policy advocates, particularly in the U.S. South, who want to make sure students receive a strong, truthful education in our public schools.
In this webinar, you will…
- See a demo of IDRA’s new School Resource Hub for educators. The website has original and curated lesson plans and tools for teaching history and current events about race and gender in today’s classroom censorship climate.
- Get an overview of America is Me (AIM) framework with five intercultural skills to promote students’ understanding of equity issues. AIM serves as a foundation for original lessons in the hub, by Dr. Kelly Ferguson and Dr. Marlon James. (See slide deck)
- Hear a student on why inclusive education is important to them.
