It is human nature to disengage from conversations that make us uncomfortable, such as gaps in equity, issues around race and implicit bias, and the effects of acute, chronic, and complex trauma on students. Educators must be prepared to understand the messy, complex, emotional, cruel, shameful, and often contradictory messages that come with these topics in order to educate the whole child. In this eye-opening edWebinar, Dr. Tyrone Howard will:
- Introduce participants to why there is a need to talk, teach, and learn across differences
- Share strategies to engage stakeholders in courageous conversations around subgroups, race-related topics, and the effects of trauma
- Share practical tips and ideas for starting the conversation and addressing inequities in schools
This edWebinar will be of value to kindergarten through high school teachers and school and district leaders.
