I have a huge A Collection Of Useful Posts, Articles & Videos On Race & Racism – Help Me Find More list, which also includes many “sub” Best lists.  It’s also pretty unwieldy for readers/users.

Many of the resources on that list are there using Storify, a tool that will be going off-line soon.  So, I’m using that change as an opportunity to cull and re-organized those links over the next few months into a series of “New & Revised” Best lists.

This is the third one (New & Revised: The Best Resources For Understanding Why We Need More Teachers Of Color was the first and New & Revised: A Collection Of Advice On Talking To Students About Race & Racism was the second. You might also be interested in The Best Resources About “Culturally Responsive Teaching” & “Culturally Sustaining Pedagogy” – Please Share More!).

Obviously, race influences our work in many ways, including in segregation (see The Best Resources For Learning About School Desegregation (& Segregation) – Help Me Find More).

This list is more specifically designed to provide resources to help us reflect on how race and racism can affect our day-to-day actions in the classroom:
