Virtual Book Club – Stamped: Racism, AntiRacism, and You

August 12, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - August 26, 2020 @ 8:30 pm

CRA Inc. Virtual Book Club - STAMPED Jason Reynolds Ibram X. Kendi

Looking to deepen your understanding of racism in order to engage in more meaningful race conversations with your students and colleagues?

Join CRA Inc. for our first book study in our new virtual series, featuring Jason Reynolds’ and Ibram X. Kendi’s STAMPED: RACISM, ANTIRACISM, AND YOU.

This book club consists of three sessions on Wednesdays, 7:30-8:30 pm via Zoom:

• August 12 – The Power of Language: The words we use matter. They have power. Explore key vocabulary from Stamped and examine language that has shifted.

• August 19 – Whose Voices Are Included, Whose Are Left Out: As the book points out, history is written by the victors. By its nature the story is told from one perspective. We will begin to examine which perspectives are included in our history and in our classroom libraries.

• August 26 – Bringing This New Understanding Back to Our Schools: You’ve read the book. What now? How do you bring this new understanding back to your classrooms in the fall? Let’s name our new understandings and lingering questions. We’ll also share picture book titles that can be used as mentor texts across K-12.
