    Ep. 8 - Bonus Episode: Returning to School During a Pandemic!? Liberation Lessons for Educators

    Episode 8: In this bonus episode, we share our thoughts, fears, and hopes about working toward racial equity in education during this phase of school reopening as the Covid-19 pandemic has killed over 500,000 Americans. 

    We talk about reopening schools in a pandemic and addressing racial equity during these times. We address the inequities in how pandemic has affected Black and brown communities, how school leaders can work through racial justice and trauma...and we muse about what this means for schools, children,  teachers, and school leaders.

    We also talk about engaging student voice during this time, and what we are looking forward to with the return to school - including not having to clean up after our kids 24/7 and also feeling like humans again instead of bedraggled parents!  

    We reference the resources listed below.  Some of our liberation lessons include being well yourself to be your best self with others, listening to young people, planning with flexibility in mind, and focusing on building relationships with students.

    Ep. 7 - Black History Month?! How to CELEBRATE instead of RELEGATE marginalized experiences to month-long celebrations.

    Ep. 7 - Black History Month?! How to CELEBRATE instead of RELEGATE marginalized experiences to month-long celebrations.

    Episode 7: In this episode, we dig into our perspectives on Black History Month as well as other months designated to celebrate certain groups of people. Join us as we ask questions about why do we have Black History Month, Women’s History Month, National Hispanic Heritage Month, Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month? 

    This week we reflect and ask the question how best can we celebrate people in schools and better yet, why? Join us as we discuss why do we as educators do it, how can we do it intentionally engage and acknowledge marginalized people, and make sure it is an authentic and not performative aspect of addressing racial equity in our schools, classrooms, and homes? 

    Some of our liberation lessons include reflecting on your own identity, learning about lived experiences different than your own, highlighting people who challenge the status quo, and the importance of learning and teaching about marginalized identities all year long.

    We reference resources listed below.

    Ep. 4 - So you want to lead a book study about race? Liberation Lessons from ColorBold

    Ep. 4 - So you want to lead a book study about race? Liberation Lessons from ColorBold

    Episode 4 - In this episode, we share our experiences having personal and professional conversations about race, in particular tied to the book So You Want To Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo. We also reference several other race-related books that we know many people are reading and talking about right now: White Fragility, Me & White Supremacy, How to Be an Anti-Racist, and We Want to Do More Than Survive. Some of our liberation lessons include connecting with white allies, co-facilitation, racial diversity within discussion groups, having many conversations over time, and tying a school-based book study to a larger purpose. We recommend using Glenn Singleton’s agreements for conversations about race from his book Courageous Conversations.
