Critical Race Theory

This month, we will consider Critical Race Theory.

On Thursday (7/10) 8 PM EST:
Join us on Twitter as we begin this conversation via our #literacies chat! If you are new to #literacies chat, more info on how to get involved is available here.

We’ll discuss:

1. How are people conceptualizing CRT?
2. What contributions does CRT make toward providing students with a more socially just curriculum?
3. How does CRT help broaden the literacies that can students enact?
4. How do we help prepare teachers to take a CRT lens in their literacies instruction?
5. What intersections do you see between CRT and literacies research?
6. How do we apply CRT in meaningful ways in classroom spaces?

On Monday (7/14) 8 PM EST join us for the LRA Research to Practice Show:  
Join David Kirkland, Allison Skerrett, Jud Laughter, and Kathleen Hinchman for the LRA Learning Research to Practice show.

The show is available via Google Hangouts-on-Air. This broadcasts the show live, which means you can watch the show live while it is happening…and ask questions. To get involved in the show, you can view (and ask questions) here. You can also watch it on YouTube after the show has completed, and share with teachers, students, and other educational partners that you believe would be interested in the topics, or the series.
