ITE Session: Exploring Racisms

This 1 to 1.5 hour session should ideally form only part of student teachers’/trainees’ input around ‘race’ and, in preparation, they will have been asked to independently research definitions of racisms.

This session develops this further, offering an opportunity for deeper exploration of the issues surrounding racisms through using and modelling a teaching strategy which could be adapted for use in schools. The strategy creates a ‘safe space’ within which the issues and complexities surrounding racisms can be addressed and discussed. The session outline provides ideas for  possible adaptation depending on the nature, experience and confidence of the group. Links to further reading and ideas for independent follow-up work are also provided.
