I know that a lot of educators are digging into books on equity and diversity this summer. Here are a few resources that have been key in my personal journey as a white male looking to become more culturally aware, equity-focused, and anti-racist. I will keep adding to this list. I’m aware that many excellent resources are currently not included here. I’m not trying to make an exhaustive list on this first post- but instead providing a ‘playlist’ of the resources that I’ve used personally and that feel like good starting places for others.
|Culturally Responsive Teaching & The Brain||THE book on culturally responsive teaching. Provides tools and strategies to dig into CRT. Clear discussion of how a lack of CRT affects students.||Zaretta Hammond||Click HERE|
|Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People||Describes the Project Implicit implicit association tests. Discusses how we all have unconscious biases (even ones we don’t want) and how these may affect us. Makes the case that we must confront and think about these “mindbugs”.||Mahzarin R. BanajiAnthony Greenwald||Click HERE|
|For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood…and the Rest of Y’all Too||Provides stories, a framework, and strategies for effectively teaching urban students of color. Lots of wisdom here.||Christopher Emdin||Click HERE|
