Meet the Moment – Race and Education

Black lives have a unique experience when it comes to living in America. As educators, what are we doing to contextualize and unpack this moment in history? How are we modeling our own learning and growth for our students? Where can we find resources for educators?

In the current climate it’s especially important to ask ourselves if we’re modeling our own learning and growth with our students. When and how we approach current events matters. Examining old curricula matters. Finding good resources matters.

As educators, what are we doing in our classroom to support students of color?  Are we examining our own teaching and biases? Educating yourself and sharing what you find with your students is a way to promote change. Education makes a difference.

To help teachers on their journey, CITE is sharing resources (scroll down under the form the form) and has started a series of workshops dealing with issues of race and education. These workshops fill up quickly, so use this form to be sure you’re added to the list that gets notified first.


In addition, we wanted to provide resources in support of #BIPOC and the #BlackLivesMatter movement so that educators can learn more. Please feel free to share these resources.
