Teachers Advised to "Get Real" on Race
Viadero, Debra
Education Week, v27 n21 p1, 14 Jan 2008
This article describes how educators are advised on tackling race-related issues in schools in a book due to be published in June by the New Press, of New York City. Called "Everyday Antiracism: Getting Real About Race in School," the volume contains 65 essays from scholars who offer advice for educators on recognizing when everyday classroom practices exacerbate racial inequalities and on becoming more constructively conscious and open about race. Chapters offer advice--drawn from both research and personal experience--on grouping students in mixed-race, mixed-ability classrooms, providing minority students with supportive feedback, forging relationships with black parents, choosing posters for the classroom wall, and a range of other potential minefields.
