With February’s focus on being a learner here at Onward, this seems like a good opportunity for me to share the learning I have done and continue to do around my racial identity. As I do with each of my posts, my intention here is to share resources that I have found helpful in my work of cultivating resilience. Here are a few that I would like to highlight and share:
- Laura Brewer’s course How to Hold Your Whiteness Responsibly. This opened a lot for on how I understand white conditioning and white supremacy. I highly recommend you look into it if you are to start exploring your whiteness.
- I am also currently listening to the podcast Scene on Radio’s series on Seeing White. This is a 14 part series and each episode is around 40 minutes.
- I also just found this blog by Heather Plett: Resources for good people who want to do better. I am beginning to work my way through many of these.
- I see Twitter as an amazing learning space. As a former English teacher, I have learned so much from the #DisruptTexts movement.
More to come.
I am am preparing a PD coming up in our school district about SEL and Equity and how they can help leverage each other. These resources are very helpful! Thank you!
It was nice to see your name pop up here Ike. Hope all is going well.
