Title: Racial Justice Action Week

Date/Time: Tuesday, October 19th, 7:00-8:30pm (EST) via Zoom

Presenter: Scott Kapralos, CREC

Description: In February of 2021, the CREC Magnet Schools launched its first annual “Racial Justice Action Week.” Teachers were given lesson plans to implement in their classroom to investigate and act on a wide range of racial justice issues. Come join this session to see an overview of the math lessons provided to teachers and engage in inquiry about the racial and ethnic makeup of advanced level (AP/ECE/IB) courses in the CREC schools. Use this as a blueprint for having students investigate your own district’s data to determine if enough is being done to disrupt the patterns of racism and systemic bias that are pervasive in our schooling systems.

The ATOMIC Mission is to ensure that every Connecticut student receives world-class education in mathematics by providing vision, leadership and support to the K-16 mathematics community and by providing every teacher of mathematics the opportunity to grow professionally.
