Creating Equality and the Feeling of Inclusion
Time & Location
About the Event
As an educator in the face of our country's racial divide, do you feel a pressing obligation to inform our students about their equality? Are you hesitant to discuss race relations in your classrooms or to add diversity issues to your curriculum? In this free hour-long webinar event for educators, Dr. Beals will speak about the tools for "Creating Equality and the Feeling of Inclusion" for each of your students.
Dr. Beals is responding to the American Academy of Pediatrics research evidence that youngsters who experience oppression, physical or emotional abuse suffer post-traumatic stress which can affect them all their lives. Therefore, racism and bullying in the classroom has prolonged negative effects on the students we wish to serve.
Considering the division in race relations currently in our country, as educators, we are all compelled to bring this subject to the forefront and enlighten our students to the benefits of diversity on a level appropriate to their age. To remain silent is to plant the seeds int the garden in ways we will regret and like perverse weeds, have difficulty to remove.
Dr. Beals is offering to share with you the tools she has learned, through a lifetime of dealing with exclusion and about how to bring diverse groups into creative, interactive and supportive communities.
Dr. Beals has a doctorate in International Multicultural Education. She is the author of two memoirs for young people about the intense oppression and segregation during the 1940's and 50's, "Warriors Don't Cry" and "March Forward, Girl". These books bring to live the raw emotiona of a young girl who understood early in her life she must fight for equality in a world where others were determined to make her "less-than" through bullying and oppression.
Please join us for this very special free webinar event with Dr. Melba Beals, Professor Emerita at Dominican University of San Rafael, California.
