Full course description

The CTUF Quest Center presents Perspectives of Critical Race Theory, facilitator-led discussion series about the race, identity, and power in public education. Participants will read, analyze, and discuss research, magazine articles, and view media that reflect various perspectives of culture, race, and identity. Participants will learn how to use a critical eye to analyze and discuss the implications of racism, colorism, culture, identity, discrimination, prejudice, privilege, micro-aggression and macro-aggression, explicit bias and implicit bias, and jurisprudence on teaching practice. Through these discussions, participants will become catalysts in ending the school to prison pipeline. 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.
