Courageous Conversations About Race synopsis
"The beauty of this volume is that it is designed to help teachers, teachers, parents, community leaders and university professors begin to engage in emotional and healthy conversations about race." Glenn Singleton and Kertis Linton gave us an important book that provides us with empirical data and well-structured exercises to help us think about ways "Gloria Ladson-Billings, a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the author of The Dreamers Singleton, is an author of the book" Look at the achievement gap through the perspective of race, and in the courageous talks on the race, begin by examining the evidence that indicates race, not poverty, as the reason behind the achievement gap. This work, while exploring how ethnicity affects all teachers, announces that we need to have constant and constant conversations about race to understand students and the achievement gap.
Singleton calls the process "courageous talks." Through these "courageous conversations", teachers can learn how to redesign the curriculum and create a true society. Action steps to close the achievement gap include the establishment of a collaborative research and equity team.
The final chapter provides a system-wide plan for the transformation of schools and areas, including activities, exercises and checklists for managers of central offices, managers and teachers.
