TPS Spotlight: RISE for Racial Equity Webinars & Micro-credential

Last Updated on January 2, 2021

TPS Equity Webinar Series

So many teachers are reflecting on how to fight racism, how to help students through the impact of the isolation and fear of the pandemic, and how to help students thrive in these challenging times. Teaching during COVID-19 and in a time of dismantling systemic racism is an experience that requires innovative approaches grounded in empathy, inquiry, trauma informed practices, and innovative thinking. The RISE for Racial Equity Webinars & Micro-credential program offer practical strategies for using inquiry and Library of Congress primary sources to dismantle racism, build empathy, and discover solutions as students gain skills in inquiry and civic mindedness.

Join us for this series of free webinars supported by the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources program with Barat Education Foundation and DePaul University. The first FREE webinar is Thursday, December 17, 2020 from 5:00 – 6:00 pm CST. Webinars are offered monthly through June, 2021 and you may register for as many as you like.
