Exploring Anti-Racist Pedagogy

April 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

In the current global state, and in our work with children and families, it is important that we create safe spaces to respectfully discuss race, racism, and reconciliation. As stated by the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion (n.d.), “Remaining passive is no longer an option. Engaging in difficult or uncomfortable conversations is the new expectation.”
In an effort to promote positive social change within our community, we welcome you to join us in taking action to examine and transform our racial knowledge and anti-racist identities.

What is the danger of a single story? How can we begin to identify when single (dominant) stories impact our work with children and families?

In April’s session we will continue to unpack power and privilege through the exploration of the stories we each carry with us. After watching a short TedTalk by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie,
The Danger of a Single Story, we will reflect on the stories we know, and how we walk with them.

  • Can you think of single stories about others you may have heard in your own context? How has that impacted your point of view?
  • How might you challenge these single stories?
  • What other stories exist?
  • How can we find out about other stories?

If you wish to watch The Danger of a Single Story before we gather, you can find a link to the video on our Anti-Racist Pedagogy Padlet.
