Decolonizing Curriculum: Antiracist Education


Over the past few months the need for an equitable history curriculum representing all voices and cultures is alarmingly clear. This session aims to give educators tools to disrupt dominant narrative students have been exposed to in history classes and center the voices of those underrepresented in the curriculum. By prompting educators to create anti-racist lesson plans, this session explores ways to use practice-based teaching and expose our students to all of history - not just some of it.
