How can we disrupt the canon and move towards anti-racist teaching, as we keep complex text at the center of instruction?

Drawing on the work of #DisruptTexts, this module will engage in learning around four key pillars.

  1. Continuously interrogate our own biases
  2. Center Black, Indigenous, and authors of color
  3. Apply a critical literacy lens to our teaching practices
  4. Work in community with others, especially, BIPOC

Who is this module for?

This module is designed for K-12 teachers (or those who support teachers) who engage in text-based work.

What can I expect?

This module's on-demand content includes readings, short videos, asynchronous discussion, and opportunities to apply this work to your own context. In total, we expect this entire course to take about 9 hours.

While we encourage you to engage with the content from all four pillars, you may also choose to select individual pillars to engage with.

If you'd like to do this course alongside colleagues - that's great! Plan to pace activities within the course for independent completion and then engage in discussion at a PLC or Zoom meeting.

How long do I have to complete the module?

This module will remain open from November 9th - December 31st.

Will I get a certificate of professional learning hours?

If you complete the learning and activities from each pillar, you will receive professional learning certificates totaling 9 hours the week of January 7th. If you complete individual pillar(s), your certificate hours will be as follows: Pillar 1: 2 hours, Pillar 2: 3 hours, Pillar 3: 3 hours, Pillar 4: 1 hour.
