Race and Schools: Identity, Relationships, and History

Teachers are building relationships, reconsidering content, and engaging in virtual pedagogy across distances unimaginable before March. Facing History and Ourselves Chicago invites you to join us, in community with other educators, for a conversation about how to keep relationships, equity, and history at the center of your focus. In this interactive online workshop, we will build on prior experiences with Facing History to engage in new conversations about affirming our students racial identity, discussing history, and talking about our own role as educators.

This workshop will provide resources and teaching strategies and will model ways to engage in brave, inclusive conversations about challenging histories and current events.

Participants will:

  • Receive lessons and approaches that can be modified for learning remotely
  • Connect learning around race and equity to Facing History case studies and themes of identity, membership and choosing to participate
  • Engage with current events and learn strategies to support students in making connections between history and today

Who should take the course? This workshop is intended for Illinois educators who have attended Facing History and Ourselves professional development previously. Educators from the Chicago Schools Alliance are encouraged to apply.

Date/ Time: October 21, 3:30-5:00 CST and October 22, 3:30-5:00 CST

Format: Synchronous and Asynchronous Online Zoom Workshop

Cost: Free. The registration fee and event fee for this online course have been waived thanks to generous funding from Facing History and Ourselves donors and partner organizations.

Clock hours (CPDU's) credits for Illinois-certified educators will be offered.
