Our First Module asks: "How did we get here?"
The first module will focus on a small overview of the history of racism and systemic oppression, an understanding of white privilege, and an introduction to why the Black Lives Matters Movement matters.
These are questions that IVA Faculty & Staff will be thinking about as we explore the material (You can adjust the questions so they are more applicable for your learning):
- What does this have to do with us as educators? (Why am I here? How can I help shape and change my community and society?)
- What are examples of bias or privilege that you might recognize from your own experience or daily life? (How does this affect or relate to me? How could it affect or relate to my students, families, or community members?)
