White Fragility: Why it’s so Hard for White People to Talk about Racism: Book Study for Educators
This is a two session series. October 1 and 15, 2020
Racial tensions have always existed in our society. Students, teachers, staff, and administrators bring personal experiences, biases, and prejudices to the school building every day and the results shape the environment in which we teach and students learn. Although we know this, we do not talk about it. This book study will help explain why that is and begin an honest conversation. Participants will explore the book with a dual focus: personal growth and applying the book’s lessons to the classroom and school communities.
