THE CLASSROOM INDEX BY THE CHOOSE ORG
A (sold-out) K-12 teacher and administrator resource for racial literacy made by the very students who educators seek to impact.
It is often difficult or uncomfortable to talk about race. For the educator, The Classroom Index provides an easy-to-use and tested solution. A reference guide, story index, and racial literacy toolbox, The Classroom Index enables educators to supplement their lesson plans with personal stories and discussion points to spark meaningful and effective conversations about race.
We didn't talk about race in school until tenth grade... even though we all start developing signs of prejudice at three to four years old. If we had been taught to understand race at a younger age, we would've been able to combat racism so much earlier. You can do better for your students!
224 pages edited by educators & Professional Advisory Board. Created by high school students who know what it's like to sit in a classroom and talk about race.
