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.
