We find ourselves in a moment where the dialogue about racism—both systemic and interpersonal—is happening across the nation. As we continue to build our class culture, many educators are looking for ways to address these conversations about race in their classrooms in alignment with culturally responsive teaching practices.

In this edWebinar, join EVERFI’s Senior Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Jesse Bridges, special guest speaker Dr. Chezare Warren, a nationally recognized researcher in the field of urban education and teacher education, and expert educator Derek Francis, Manager of Counseling Services for Minneapolis Public Schools and Consultant with Hatching Results, for a conversation about how educators can both strengthen their culturally responsive instruction and facilitate discussions around race, privilege, systemic racism and more in their classrooms.

Educators will leave this session with an awareness of the Culturally Responsive Teaching framework as well as strategies to create opportunities for deeper classroom conversations surrounding race and equity. Attendees will also gain access to a digital resource for teaching about Black History as well as an Anti-Racism Extension Guide, complete with lessons, activities, and relevant articles.

This edWebinar will be of interest to elementary through high school teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
