Explore how one fifth grade classroom engaged elementary-aged students in conversations about privilege to foster anti-racist understanding. This workshop will have hands on exercises and concrete tools to support upper elementary/middle school-aged students’ understanding of privilege. Learn ways to begin a conversation about whiteness and white privilege using the BBC’s documentary The Delmar Divide, along with experiential activities, role play scenarios, and other approaches. In this workshop, we will explore how to engage students and teach them how to respond to situations and be an “upstander,” standing up against microaggressions and interrupting racism.
