Event description

Description

Greetings Black teachers and educators! We are excited to be hosting the 4th year of our Bay Area Text Study (formerly know as "book study"). This semester, we will be reading Bettina Love's powerful new book: We Want to Do More Than Survive, Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom.

Join us for this eight week series that will deepen your practice and enrich your teaching toolkit in fellowship with Black teachers and educators like yourself. Learn from Bettina Love's persuasive argument that educators must teach students about racial violence, oppression, and how to make sustainable change in their communities through radical civic initiatives and movements.

This group has limited capacity so please be sure to RSVP. We will have 20 spots available for Black TK-12 classroom teachers and 5 spots available for Black educators who are not in TK-12 classrooms. Please be sure to choose the correct ticket type depending on whether you are a teacher or educator. We ask that you RSVP for every meeting date you will attend so that we can plan accordingly. Participants who attend at least 6 meetings this semester (for at least 90 minutes) and complete a final project will earn $75 for each session attended. BTP will provide books for participants to borrow.

Please note: This is intended to be an all-Black educator affinity space.
