Dear Teacher and Counselor Friends,
Social justice education. Teach your students and staff about microaggressions and antiracist work. At the heart of the lesson is research. Please review the lesson plan and activities to determine best practices for your audience. Microaggressions can be a sensitive topic for many. Please use professional judgement in your delivery and sensitivity to the topic and your audience.
It can be taught in 1-3 parts, but 3 days is recommended
If teaching in 2 days, stop after letter C on day 1. Then complete the rest of the lesson on day 2.
If teaching in 3 days, use the following guide
Day 1- Stop after letter B of the whole group discussion.
Day 2-Stop after letter D of the whole group discussion.
Day 3-Complete the rest of the lesson.
*This lesson is also an excellent background knowledge builder for students in very homogenous communities who aren’t afforded the opportunities to interact with, know, and learn from people from diverse backgrounds.
