Check Out My Article on Teachers Talking Race
Hey Cocoa Fly Readers. Check out my article in the Fall 2009 issue of Teaching Tolerance magazine. The magazine is run by the Southern Poverty Law Center. My article "Talking Race" is about how discussions on race need to happen in the classroom as well as the faculty. Apparently, race isn't discussed amongst teachers. How can instructors teach kids about race if they're not comfortable discussing it? There's some interesting stuff in the piece. You can read it here. Feel free to speak your mind on the article in Cocoa Fly's comments section.
