Resources for Teaching about Race, Anti-Racism & Violence
SFUSD recognizes the news about the many recent violent incidents has an impact on our students, families, and community, and is committed to supporting students as they process current events. This is a time for us to affirm our anti-racist practices, build and strengthen the authentic partnership we develop with students, and help students to engage in deeper learning.
See resources for educators and for families about talking with students about race, racism, and police violence, as well as resources to help children, families, and communities navigate what they are seeing and hearing in the news.
This is also a time to continue to uplift and celebrate Black History - 365 Days a Year. See SFUSD’s updated Black History Month Resource Guide.
White Supremacy Culture: Characteristics and Antidotes
In our monthly meetings with CBOs, the ExCEL team dedicates time to review and reflect on both the characteristics of White Supremacy culture, and Antidotes to those characteristics. We strive to provide concrete examples of practices we can implement in our day to day work together to serve students.
We offer these resources for you to explore:
