Teaching and Race in the Classroom

Wednesday, November 8, 2017
4:00pm – 6:30pm

Storrs Campus
Heritage Room, Babbidge Library 4th Floor

This workshop will provide an informal, small-group opportunity for participants to discuss, share experiences, and ask questions about addressing issues of race and racism in the classroom. We will read portions of Derald Wing Sue’s “Race Talk and the Conspiracy of Silence: Understanding and Facilitating Difficult Dialogues on Race” in advance of the workshop. The discussion will focus on how participants incorporate issues of race and racism into their classes and how they introduce, facilitate, and respond to these issues in classroom settings. Participation will be limited to 15. Books are available in the Human Rights Institute for those who register. Please register here:
