In response to the outcry about systematic racism and police violence against Black people in our nation today, many educators are wondering what they can do in their classrooms to create a more just society. Science educators can play a critical role in supporting students with both culturally relevant and anti-racist content as part of their instruction.

In this edWebinar, educators will learn:

  • Principles of culturally responsive and anti-racist education, including self-reflective resources
  • Approaches to incorporating these strategies into science instruction, such as selecting relevant and provocative science phenomena and using everyday language

Specific examples will be explored, and attendees will be provided resources to accompany each section of the presentation so they are prepared to start implementing their newly learned strategies.

This edWebinar is of interest to elementary through high school teachers and school and district leaders.
