#curriculumsowhite: Teacher Education’s Responsibility for Racial Justice in Schools

Speaker: Dr. Bree Picower- Montclair State
Date: May 15, 2018
Time: 6:30pm
Location: To be announced

FLYER: Teacher Education’s Responsibility for Racial Justice in Schools

Description: In this talk, Dr. Picower will share recent examples of racist curriculum that have gone viral over social media. Rather than seeing these as isolated occurrences, Picower will situate these examples in the broader context of historical and institutional racism and its role in US schooling. The presentation lifts up the responsibility of teacher education in the production and enactment of racist curriculum and asks what role teacher education must play in working toward racial justice in schools. Through a close examination of pre-service teachers’ racial ideology and the curriculum they ultimately end up teaching, this presentation provides concrete strategies on how teacher education can interrupt patterns of racism in schools.
