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 second one (New & Revised: The Best Resources For Understanding Why We Need More Teachers Of Color was the first. You might also be interested in The Best Posts & Articles On How To Teach “Controversial” Topics):
‘White Educators Must Sharpen Their Humility’ Before They Discuss Race is the headline of the final part of a three-part series in my Ed Week Teacher column.
The Value of Diversity is the topic of this topic of my NY Times interactive for ELLs.
The November, 2016 issue of ASCD Educational Leadership is now online, and it’s another very good one – the them is “Disrupting Equity”!
