Better Questions, in partnership with Isabella Droginske, will be offering a workshop titled, “Teaching CRT? Conversations about Race in the Classroom” to explore critical race pedagogy, how to encourage honest student conversations on racial equity, and how to mindfully approach your own growth alongside young learners in this area.
During this session, Isabella will share some of the projects and practices she has implemented in her classroom to scaffold conversations and focus necessary attention to discussions of race and gender equity. Her detailed and intentional practices are supported not only by their thorough attention to critical thinking practices but also by how her students have enthusiastically engaged with the materials both classic and contemporary.
Please join Better Questions and Isabella on September 15 from 6:00 – 7:00 pm to learn more about critical race pedagogy, how to encourage honest student conversations on racial equity, and how to mindfully approach your own growth alongside young learners in this area.
