ACTION DURING THIS HISTORIC TIME: WHAT CAN I DO? with Michelle Black
In two sessions, we will start to answer questions that many people have, “What can I do? and How can I be better for my students, friends, community, colleagues, etc?” Sometimes knowing where to begin can be paralyzing because there’s so much to be done. In an effort to move toward action, oftentimes we find ourselves afraid to make mistakes. And we also feel that we must figure it all out before we act.
Prior to session one, participants will receive an essay and an article. The 2-hour session (breaks included) will allow us to co-create some ground rules and provide space for the group to establish courage and vulnerability. Then we will reflect on the “homework” and begin to bravely examine our personal implicit biases. Additionally, participants will consider their own identities as a window to understanding the identities of others to build more authentic, empathic relationships.
Michelle graduated from New York University with a B.A. in English Literature and Journalism, Columbia University’s, Teachers College, MA in Teaching of English, and an MS.Ed. from the University of Pennsylvania in School Leadership.
