Using the Responding to Bigotry Guidebook (Educators for Social Justice), this workshop will engage participants in an exploration of bias and how to use young adult fiction to stimulate critical conversations. Participants will examine common triggers and discuss the importance of creating both safe and brave spaces for carefully engineered discussions about bigotry within and beyond the classroom. This course is appropriate for grades 6-12 educators.
