Dealing With Racist—and Other Inappropriate—Comments in the Classroom: A Workshop

Dealing With Racist—and Other Inappropriate—Comments in the Classroom: A Workshop

Monday, April 15, 2019 - 3:15 pm to 5:00 pm

Facilitators Victoria DeFrancisco, Susan Hill and Karen Mitchell will present this workshop.

Many of us find it challenging to handle racist or inappropriate comments in the classroom. Such comments often take us off guard, and can be very difficult to handle well.  This workshop focuses on: 1) the kinds of comments we should be attentive to, including microaggressions; 2) how we can set up our classrooms to avoid such comments and respond effectively when they happen; and 3) practicing our responses to such comments, because the best way to handle inappropriate language is to be prepared to do so!
