Presented by the Barat Education Foundation and DePaul University
Presenters: Dr. Donna Kiel, Dr. Tina Curry, and Dr. David Bates
The webinar shares an overview of the transformational racial equity teaching process entitled RISE. RISE is a process that uses primary sources from the Library of Congress as resources to engage students in building reflection, inquiry, self-awareness, and empathy skills, all of which are key to developing racial equity. The Barat Education Foundation, in partnership with DePaul University, presented a series of 8 webinars during 2020-2021 as well as an online micro-credential program focused on RISE and using primary sources as the keys to integrate social emotional learning when examining racial justice. This session will present an overview of the sessions and engage participants in modeling a lesson that can be used to start the 2021-2022 school year.
The RISE program offers 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.
