SchoolTalk: Rethinking What We Say About - And To - Students Every Day
Author Mica Pollock, professor at UC San Diego, discusses educators' role in the immediate and long haul effort against hate and inequality
Join the Bank Street community at this Library Salon! Mica Pollock discusses educators’ role in the immediate and long haul effort against hate and inequality. Before and since the 2016 election, educators have seen a spike in explicit hate speech in schools– cruel comments that denigrate and distort types of people. It’s a moment when we need civil discourse and dialogue against hate more than ever. But educators also need to be thinking about whether our most routine talk in schools supports equity – that is, the full human talent development of every student and all groups of students. Drawing on decades of work about how people talk about students and in schools, Pollock frames schooltalk as critical work putting today’s educators on the front lines of social change.
