About the Course

Everyday Antiracism is a book study that will identify acts of racism in our schools, expose educators to the ways in which others have handled the experience, and give actionable steps to  addressing racism in any classroom or school. This book study is ideal for any educator with any degree of comfort talking with students about racially charged actions.

This book study will provide educators multiple opportunities to identify acts of racism within their classroom or school, reflect on their own practices, and identify strategies to use in future situations. Participants can expect to collaborate, discuss, and create an action plan that considers the philosophies and examples discussed in this book and the course. It’s important to remember that in discussing race that sometimes you may leave a conversation feeling uncomfortable, or like your questions are unanswered.

  • Explain theories and philosophies discussed in the book.
  • Reflect on their teaching practices.

April is a wonderful leader and has the essence to incorporate difficult content into an understanding forum. I have become so much more empowered to discuss equity work within my school. Take her class!
