Introduction to Antiracist Pedagogy - March 8
On March 8th from 1-2:30 p.m., Mishka, Yama, Angela and Shawn will present the introduction to antiracist pedagogy. During this session, the presenters will do an overview of what it is to be an antiracist educator through self reflection journaling, explanation of racist/antiracist definitions and practices, and break out room sessions with discussion prompts that lead to dialogue on how race and racism affects one's teaching. We will provide participants with a framework on how to become an antiracist educator. Participants will be given homework for the next session and antiracist resources.

On April 5th from 1-2:30 p.m., Mishka, Yama, Angela, Shawn and Kirsten will present a continuation of the previous presentation where they further the conversation about antiracist pedagogy to focus on the dilemmas of race and racism in the classroom. In this session, we discuss how to infuse antiracist pedagogy into one's curriculum and classroom practices by incorporating restorative circles, trauma sensitive practices, how to talk about race in the classroom, reliving and sharing racist scenarios that may occur in the classroom and how to handle them, incorporating antiracism in different disciplines, etc. All participants will leave with an action plan on the next steps on becoming an antiracist educator.
