Join us for a 3-hour overview and in-depth discussion of Pollyanna's K-8 Racial Literacy Curriculum. Monique Vogelsang, lead creator of this curriculum, will guide you through a discussion about Pollyanna's Racial Literacy Curriculum, which is designed to help students gain knowledge about race as it has been constructed in the United States. Employing lessons in history, literacy, science, geography –– with STEAM extensions –– the curriculum supports students in acquiring an awareness of their own racial socialization and skills for engaging in productive conversations about race and racism.
Our workshop will introduce the curriculum, which was released to schools free of charge in 2019. Together, we'll review curricular highlights of each grade, so educators can better understand how to address race in the classroom. After taking this workshop, participants will feel more confident and inspired to incorporate race dialogue and content into their existing curriculum.
This professional development is appropriate for K-8 faculty, curriculum advisors and administrators. The Zoom room will open at 12:45PM ET, and we will begin at 1:00PM ET and run until 4:00PM ET.
Cost is $250 per person. The registration link will be open until July 21 at 9PM ET.
A Zoom link will be sent to you the day before the workshop. If you do not receive it or have any other questions, please email Claire at email@example.com
