Capstone Project Title
Jennifer Carlson & Kelly Killorn
Every educator should be antiracist. Racism, both overt and inadvertent, in the classroom leads to students entering the school to prison pipeline, the widening of the opportunity gap, and lack of support for English language learners. This capstone project works to answer the research question: How can educators be antiracist and incorporate antiracist practices into teaching elementary students? Antiracist strategies in the classroom include developing strong and positive relationships with all students, using culturally relevant pedagogy in the classroom, and providing ESL students with language support. This project also provides educators with the opportunity to engage in a series of five professional developments to begin the lifelong journey of antiracist work to better serve Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) in the classroom.
