Dana Goldstein, education reporter for The NY Times, is soliciting feedback from teachers about how they are dealing with race issue in the classroom.
The Times has a form for teachers to complete here. She writes:
How do you and your students discuss subjects like segregation, immigration, racial inequality, slavery, the Civil War or Native American history? How often do textbooks or classroom activities start these conversations, versus students initiating the discussion by raising questions or concerns?
Perhaps your students taught you something about race — or you chose to intervene in a conversation about race that they were having among themselves.
