I asked my classes this year when they first became aware of the concept of race. The overwhelming majority of them said in school when their elementary school teachers did lessons that addressed it specifically - the Native American experience, Martin Luther King Jr, and Rosa Parks. Teachers of all levels clearly have an important role to play in helping kids begin important conversations about race, but we can do a better job at sharing more varied and complex stories across our curriculum. I know we are all working at this, but there is so little time, especially now. I'm hoping to create some time and space, so we can all share materials and best practices and do some digging. I welcome teachers working with any grade level. We'll chat all together and then make some breakout rooms for grade and then subject alike groups to work together.
