PLEASE NOTE:  THIS SESSION IS 2 HOURS AND TAKES UP BREAKOUT SESSION 2 and 3. Teachers play a crucial role in helping students talk openly about the historical roots and contemporary manifestations of social inequality and discrimination. Learning how to communicate about such topics as white privilege, police violence, economic inequality, and mass incarceration requires practice, and facilitating difficult conversations demands courage and skill—regardless of who we are, our intentions or how long we’ve been teaching.

In this session we will utilize resources from Teaching Tolerance to identify strategies that will assist teachers to prepare to facilitate difficult conversations about race and racism, and other types of discrimination such as gender bias, ableism, and religious or anti-LGBT persecution.
