STANDING WITH BLACK STUDENTS, STAFF AND FAMILIES
It is an understatement to say that the past few months have been unprecedented. The Coronavirus pandemic continues its path of devastation. The killing of George Floyd ricocheted throughout the world. Emerging from the dust is an unleashed hope, urgency and passion to battle this COVID-19 virus and to end the racist practices that have sidelined communities for generations. The creativity and heroism of educators will light our journey for a transformed society. Student Health and Human Services is here with supports and resources.
Good teaching includes helping students process their thoughts and feelings about the world and creating space for them to bring their full selves to school. This document, Courageous Conversations with Students, provides tools, lesson plans, and practical advice for facilitating dialogues with students about power, privilege, oppression, and resistance.
