Can We Really Talk? Discussing Race in the Classroom Through the Lens of the Media

January 26, 2022 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm
Hosted online via Zoom

This session explores how to acknowledge, teach, and talk about race and racism with students (including our own understanding of this sensitive topic) in the classroom through the lens of the media. We will discuss how the media frames and influences the perspectives students bring to class, and consider the challenges and benefits of navigating such topics. Using examples from recent news stories, we will analyze the nature of the news coverage and share strategies for having productive class discussions about current events related to race in America.

This workshop series is co-sponsored by the Office of Instutional Diversity, Equity, Advocacy and Leadership (IDEAL).

Guest Facilitator: David Brown, Diversity Advisor to the Office of the Dean and Assistant Professor of Instruction at Klein College

The CAT will send registered participants a Zoom access link to this webinar via email one hour prior to the sessions.
