“Share My Lesson” invites you to join a webinar with education experts from the American Federation of Teachers, the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Teaching Tolerance project, the Anti-Defamation League and Facing History and Ourselves as we review lessons on the events in Charlottesville, covering topics such as the so-called alt-right, the history of hate and white supremacy, how to talk about race and religion, memorials and monuments, the First and Second amendments, and the emotional impact on our students. We will share resources on these topics and concrete examples of how to discuss these issues with students in elementary, middle and high school.
Our students and their families deserve to know that we are allies in the fight against intolerance and bigotry. Providing thoughtful, intentional lessons on the events in Charlottesville, and on the fight against bigotry and intolerance, is one way of addressing their very serious questions and concerns.
After the webinar concludes, we will continue our conversation with a Twitter chat using the hashtag #CharlottesvilleCurriculum
