Athletic team name that was a derogatory term for indigenous people was changed to much uproar.
Trish Emerson
44:44
I’m thinking about how neighborhoods in Portland had different connotations when I was a kid
Jennifer Crim
44:55
Here is the name of the high school I graduated from Coquille High School. There has been controversy about its mascot for years. The mascot is still a red devil.
Beth Szczepanski
45:01
I used to live in Columbus, Ohio and I've heard that there is a proposal to rename it Flavor Town in honor of Guy Fieri. Not likely to happen, but it would be interesting to see if they find an alternative to Columbus.

the nearby Skipanon River is adapted from a Clatsop Indian word, Skippernawin, referred to a point at the mouth of the stream

Michelle Coleman

My immediate thought went to my hometown, Gaston, and when I hear this name I think of my life growing up and how lucky I was to grow up in a small town and have a wonderful group of friends.
Darrow (she/her)

Growing up in Corpus Christi, TX, I always knew that it was named “Body of Christ” but the culture of the city was not as welcoming as the body of Christ should/would be
Wendy Salas

Woodburn: got its name because a slash burn got out of control and burned down a wood lot. Used to be Halsey, but there was already a Halsey OR.

I apologize that I have to jump to a meeting. These resources are so great, Stacy! Thanks for sharing all of this with us.

Definitely would consider using this canyon video prior to reading "The Secret Life of Bees"--10th graders already look at pics of Southern segregation and a protest clip from "The Butler" as introductory setup, but this would really sock home that racism is not "back then" or "down South" but here and still leaving disturbing vestiges.
Laurie Dougherty
01:07:27
Great idea Dean!
Jennifer Crim
01:09:14
It is a great idea.
Beth Szczepanski
01:09:14
I agree! It's so important to show that the northwest has its own racist past and present to grapple with.
Lauren Mallett (she/her/hers)
01:10:20
The timing of this lesson is fantastic. I'm teaching US History and next week is Manifest Destiny/Westward Expansion.
Angela Dengel (she/her)
01:10:34
Stoked to see so many resources coming from people of color…it’s been missing in our teaching for a long time!
Laurie Dougherty
01:11:40
I love the reflection pieces and the discussion questions. I'd like to see opportunities for students to research some of the other place names too.
Beth Elliott
01:11:50
My next steps are exploring and reflecting on the various curriculum guides as inspiration for weaving future lessons and sharing with colleagues. I'm excited to see these diverse voices in curriculum with so many entry points in multiple texts and topics! Thank you.
Karen Johnson
01:11:57
Lots of great resources and well organized. Hope we get the word out
Darrow (she/her)
01:12:27
I’m so excited to share this with my classmates at Lewis & Clark, these resources will be amazing for us as new teachers
Michelle Coleman
01:13:10
I am wrapping up a narrative unit and will definitely use the resources that have been shared today and am excited to use others as I build and plan upcoming curriculum.
