Crucial Conversations: Racial Dialogs

giving presentationIn the last week, I’ve connected to teachers over v/c in Kansas, Texas and Michigan to talk about the Racial Dialog videoconference series produced by CSD and A World of Difference.I’ve shared with teachers our 5 part series on racism, stereotyping, discrimination and prejudice. Bringing together high school students from different demographic areas (urban, suburban, rural) for a facilitated conversation really brings out interesting thoughts and ideas. Last year, we had a school from New Jersey join 3 St. Louis area schools in the dialogs, adding a new layer of discussion.We’re still hammering out the dates for the 2007-2008 school year, but if you are interested in having your students participate, contact the VLC.
