THE CLASSROOM INDEX BY CHOOSE
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 provided an easy-to-use solution. A reference guide, story index, and racial literacy toolbox, The Classroom Index enabled educators to supplement their lesson plans with personal stories and discussion points to spark meaningful and effective conversations about race.
