Feedback form is now closed.


How have we arrived at this moment of reckoning in with race and racism in our schools and what should we do now? This session will include a brief introduction to critical social justice pedagogy and critical race theory which will help teachers and school leaders begin to understand how to engage constructively in anti-racist pedagogy with direct application for their classrooms and schools. Antiracism resources and upcoming events available through the ATA will be shared.
