Free book on “Teaching for Black Lives” Available for Teachers in Seattle Public Schools
We are passing on some information from our friends at Rethinking Schools:
We've got some great news about Teaching for Black Lives — Grammy award-winning artist Macklemore and 3-time NFL pro bowler Michael Bennett have teamed up to purchase a copy of Teaching for Black Lives for every social studies and language arts teacher in Seattle Public Schools.
We're hoping that this model can be replicated in other cities throughout the United States and are hoping you can help:
1) Share this blog post with your networks: rethinkingschoolsblog.com/2018/09/18/wow-exciting-news-about-teaching-for-black-lives/
2) Share this Facebook post and Twitter post on social media (feel free to tag your favorite artist or athlete to do a similar action in another city 😀).
We also encourage readers to check out our current issue of the Journal of Educational Controversy on the theme, “Black Lives Matter and the Education Industrial Complex.” https://cedar.wwu.edu/jec/
