15 Classroom Resources for Discussing Racism, Policing, and Protest
As nationwide protests against police brutality continue, teachers in their virtual classrooms are once again searching for ways to help their students process the killings of black people in police custody in the United States. Speaking with Education Week on Monday , teachers said that they and their colleagues have a responsibility to address these protests, which erupted when George Floyd, an unarmed black man, died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes. Talking with students about these events, as they experience them, is top priority right now, said Abdul Wright, who teaches 8th grade language arts in North Minneapolis. Some teachers whose classes have already ended for the school year are reaching back out to students, particularly their black students, giving them space to talk about their emotions and ask questions. Other teachers in schools still in session are seeking materials and resources to teach about this moment, such as lesson plans that engage students in conversations about racism, policing, and protest.

Whereas the previous chapter reviewed cognitive aspects of literacy and content learning, this chapter examines research related to a variety of social factors involved in school learning. It is clear that children may arrive at school ready to learn in a number of different ways. One way is to have high levels of language, emergent literacy, and world knowledge acquired at home or in preschool. Equally important, though, is readiness in the emotional, social, and motivational realms: the ability to adapt to the new constraints of the classroom, the social skills that are needed to participate effectively in classroom discourse, and the self-esteem and sense of agency required to work hard and learn intentionally. School learning is a social as well as a cognitive process, one influenced by the relationships between student and teacher and among students.
We chose activities that focused on race and social class because many teachers find these issues difficult to address with young children and sometimes.
“I Don’t See Color”: Challenging Assumptions about Discussing Race with Young Children
Early childhood classrooms in the US continue to become increasingly diverse as we journey through the twenty first century. Yet and still, many early childhood educators have been slow to respond to these shifts in diversity on the basis of both developmental and political concerns.

Conversations play a significant role in early childhood antibias and multicultural education because they enable children to connect with others and to begin to see the implications of certain assumptions. However, engaging children in these conversations is not always easy. No matter what the question, children frequently resist answering adults, and for some, concerns about race and social class may seem distant or even irrelevant. This article describes a project in which the authors observed kindergarten children's responses to specific antibias and multicultural activities to see which materials and teaching practices most frequently elicited meaningful conversations.

Стоявшая перед ней задача была проста: войти в компьютер Хейла, найти ключ и уничтожить все следы его переписки с Танкадо. Нигде не должно остаться даже намека на Цифровую крепость. Сьюзан снова завладели прежние сомнения: правильно ли они поступают, решив сохранить ключ и взломать Цифровую крепость. Ей было не по себе, хотя пока, можно сказать, им сопутствовала удача. Чудесным образом Северная Дакота обнаружился прямо под носом и теперь попал в западню.
Я понимаю, - сказал. - Извините за беспокойство. Повернувшись, он направился через фойе к выходу, где находилось вишневое бюро, которое привлекло его внимание, когда он входил. На нем располагался щедрый набор фирменных открыток отеля, почтовая бумага, конверты и ручки. Беккер вложил в конверт чистый листок бумаги, надписал его всего одним словом: Росио - и вернулся к консьержу. - Извините, что я снова вас беспокою, - сказал он застенчиво.
