Facilitated Discussions in Critical Race Theory
The CTUF Quest Center presents Facilitated Discussions in Critical Race Theory; facilitator led discussions about the race, identity, and power in public education. Participants will learn what Critical Race Theory (CRT) is and the implications on teaching practice They will learn some of its key tenets: racism is commonplace and not aberrational; racism serves a purpose, both mental and material; race is a social construct; and how differential racialization serves and has served to shift needs in our society. These discussions are aligned to the CPS Framework for Teaching 1b: Demonstrating Knowledge of Students, 2a: Creating an Environment of Respect and Rapport, and 2b: Establishing a Culture for Learning.
