We are CONSCIENTIOUS - Race and Culture II Addresses Systemic Change
As part of their trimester-long research projects into how race and culture are embedded into systems of oppression and change, the Race and Culture II scholars investigated topics ranging from the school-to-prison pipeline to graduation rates to absent narratives within our US History curriculum. The culminating activity was to present their research and recommendations to site and system leadership to help foster conversations about systemic change. They are CONSCIENTIOUS about how to address 21st century needs for inquiry, critical thinking, and amplifying scholar voice in their own education.
Above: The Absent Narrative group presents their process and findings to site and system leadership as their final assessment.
