Fall 2014 – Citywide Workshops


“Talking About Race in the Classroom: A Hands-On Workshop for Visionary Educators”
When: Saturday, November 22, 2014 | 10am-4pm
Where: Brooklyn Friends School | 375 Pearl St | BrooklynNY 11201

Description: How can we have meaningful conversations about race or racism with our students? How can we ensure racial equity in our classrooms and schools? 

Border Crossers invites you to participate in a powerful day of professional development for educators  seeking to engage in conversations about race in schools.

This is not a lecture or a presentation – we use interactive theater and adult learning techniques to:

  • Deepen our analysis about structural racism
  • Enhance our understanding about how racism affects children
  • Share personal experiences of critical moments with students
  • Practice using tools and language to address race and racism in the classroom
  • Develop strategies to support a school-wide culture of respect, equity and inclusivity
