Letters to Marcia: A Teacher's Guide to Anti-Racist Education.
Staff development and classroom activities related to anti-racism are presented in this guide for Canadian teachers. The manual is divided into four chapters, plus an introduction and conclusion. Chapter 1 discusses the meaning of anti-racist education, and describes ways in which racism can affect the culture and society of a school. Each of the remaining chapters explores a different aspect of school life, but all are organized similarly, in four sections: a general discussion in the form of a letter to a teacher; staff development notes and activities; classroom activities; and resources. Chapter 2 describes ways of equalizing the partnership of the school and the community. It is addressed primarily to classroom teachers and administrators. Chapter 3, targeted primarily at classroom teachers, considers ways of using the curriculum to eliminate racist ideas. Finally, Chapter 4 provides methods for administrators, guidance counselors, and providers of support services to assess racism within the services they offer to students. The activities presented in this guide are meant to be integrated into existing programs, and are aimed at assisting students in developing a critical approach to social issues and in engaging in action to change unjust situations.
