Create staff development training that addresses the relationship between race and achievement!

Acutely aware of the statistical gaps in achievement between different racial groups, educators realize that eliminating this disparity is critically to developing cultural proficiency. Candid conversations about race help educational leaders understand why performance inequity persists and how to guide policy analysis and instructional reform that promotes true academic parity. Designed to complement the best-selling Courageous Conversations About Race, this facilitator's guide shows how to use professional development events to help educational leaders examine the achievement gap through the prism of race.

This chapter-by-chapter guide explains how to engage educators in discussions about personal agendas, multiple racial perspectives, closing the racial achievement gap, and extending their professional learning. Trainers also will find practical features, including

  • Implementation exercises
  • Prompts, language, and tools that support profound discussion
  • Activities and checklists for administrators
  • Action steps for creating an equity team

Highlights for the facilitator include

  • Activities for small or large groups
  • Discussion and journaling prompts
  • Key sources for supplemental reading
  • Sample workshop agendas for half-day, one-day, or two- to three-day sessions
  • A workshop evaluation form

Using the Facilitator's Guide to Courageous Conversations About Race, you can help educators construct a language and a process for addressing the relationship between race and achievement. With creative, open dialogue, leaders can restructure their schools and fulfill every student's potential regardless of race, culture, or class.
