Microaggressions: How to Spot ’Em, How to Stop ‘Em

Creating the space for your students to take risks and make mistakes is some of the hardest work teachers do. When 6th Grade English teacher Katie Reen set out to make that space for her students in the realm of microaggressions in texts they were reading together, they practices and discovered much more than they expected.

High school students worked alongside Ms. Reen and her students in this important, engaging work and her reflection on the experience has the potential to start conversations about this essential work in classrooms all over Nashville, and beyond. We’d love to hear your thoughts and connections to the work and if you’re doing similar work, we’d love to hear your story!
