Resources for Courageous Conversations about Race in the Twin Ports

CETL is providing some pedagogy and teaching/learning resources to facilitate more discussion in classrooms and out of classroom learning environments on race and racism. 

  • Dr. Mary Lee-Nichols has recommended a great book entitled Courageous Conversations About Race:  A Field Guide for Achieving Equity Schools written by Glenn E. Singleton and Curtin Linton (2006:  Corwin Press).  This book provides many wonderful teaching and learning tools to use in the learning environments and offers a deep level background on how to encourage courageous conversations about race with students.  CETL has purchased five copies of this book in the CETL library available to you for check-out and use.
  • CETL also has extra copies of the Inclusive Pedagogy materials used for the First Year Seminar equipping sessions in June 2011, prepared by Dr. Mary Lee-Nichols of the Educational Leadership Department.  You can borrow one of these blue folders for great insights and resources on inclusive pedagogy.
  • Handout for Consciousness Raising for Multicultural Awareness.
  • Handout for the "ISM" Continuum.

Additional information on this website (below) was provided by experts on Inclusive Excellence:

  • Dr. Alma Clayton-Pedersen (keynote speaker and trainer at Fall 2010 Enhancement Day)
  • Dr. Paul Gorski (keynote speaker and trainer at Fall 2009 Enhancement Day) 
  • Review UW-Superior's Inclusive Excellence website (www.uwsuper.edu/ie/) for plans, stories and successes by colleagues and students across our campus.
  • Review the Un-Fair Campaign website (http://unfaircampaign.org/ )

CETL is looking for additional great resources to assist with teaching and learning on white privilege and racism in general.  If you have suggestions, please let us know (cetl@uwsuper.edu) and we will purchase them for the CETL Library.

Your CETL Library is located in the CETL suite on 2nd Floor Swenson Hall.
