First Book and Pizza Hut created a video series and guidebook “to support educators in helping their students engage in effective, courageous conversations about race and social justice.” These resources were informed by BIPOC anti-bias and antiracism experts, including Britt Hawthorne, Tiffany Jewell, Liz Kleinrock, Cornelius Minor, and Christine Platt. https://firstbook.org/pizzahut-empoweringeducators/

If you are not familiar with these individuals and their work, I highly recommend following them in Instagram, Liz Kleinrock is especially active here and I learn something from her every single day. She is incredible.

The language arts teachers in my building are interested in attending professional development sessions regarding teaching diverse materials in the classroom.  They are NOT interested in the selection of these materials (they are leaving that to me). They want strategies for handling discussions about sensitive topics.

Has anyone attended anything like this or know where I can find good sessions?
