Racial Justice Student Training
- School Year: 2019-2020
- Applicants: Aimee Heaton, Lead Teacher & Jill Larson, Rick Bassett
- School: Norfeldt
- Subjects: Social Studies, Other
Using the resources "From Tolerance to Unity," this training offers students and parents the opportunity to unmask and dismantle racism. It gives students a common language to talk about issues of racism and empowers them to address racism in their schools and in their lives. Norfeldt students will learn about the history of racism, and then explore racism in our world today. They will engage in creative exercises, watch video clips addressing racism in the past and in the present, and then have the opportunity to participate in empowering activities to demonstrate their own power to dismantle racism. The "Farm Analogy" is used to frame the conversation, discussing the poison of racism in our soil, and how we can get rid of the toxins together.
