DEI Hosts Parent Workshop "How to (Further) Engage Our Children in Conversations About Race and Racism: Connecting the Classroom to Home"
Thank you to those who were able to join us for the Racial Literacy Workshops for FP/MS parents led by Monique Vogelsang, lead creator of Pollyanna's K-8 Racial Literacy Curriculum.
The goal of these sessions was to inform parents of Pollyanna's K-8 Racial Literacy Curriculum, help parents understand why racial literacy is important, and how it can be infused into the classroom through the use of the Racial Literacy Curriculum. This curriculum is designed to build bridges and connections––for all students to recognize similarities among their peers along lines of race, while also celebrating perceived differences.
We hope to plant seeds that will encourage and enhance racial literacy, geographical awareness, and cultural competence both in the classroom and throughout one's life.
