POV Watch Club: After Show and Resources | March

  • SHARE:

We’ve done it again, Watch Club friends! Our March After Show is here and ready to invite you into conversations about race, class, education, society, and family inspired by American Promise. This month you will be invited into an intimate space of conversation, reflection, and honesty that reveals the costs of believing the promise of education in a racist society. Join Dr. Gina Tillis in conversation with Joe Brewster, Michèle Stephenson, Idris Brewster as they share their individual and collective wisdom. The After Show closes with some real-talk from your hosts as we honestly consider how this conversation inspired and affirmed our own reflections and experiences of education.

Resources for You!

To support your continued growth on this journey and offer some tangible tools to bring into your classroom practice we are also providing this list of free resources. Each month, following the After Show, you can expect a list of resources to support your teaching, continued learning, and creativity in your own classroom. 

Be sure to tell your colleagues and friends to sign up for POV Watch Club!
