The EIS has become aware of various new anti-racist education resources, which may be of interest to members.
“Addressing Inclusion: Effectively Challenging Racism in Schools” is a resource developed by the Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights (CRER) and respectme, Scotland's anti-bullying service. The resource provides information and guidance to school staff on addressing racist bullying in Scottish schools and has been written to complement ‘Respect for All’, the national approach to anti-bullying.
You can find the ‘Addressing Inclusion’ guidance here:
“Celebrating Difference: Exploiting Stereotypes and Anti-Racism” is a resource developed as part of the ‘Celebrating Difference’ campaign, which is run by Respect Me, in partnership with LGBT Youth Scotland, the Scottish Association for Mental Health, Show Racism the Red Card, and the Scottish Government. It contains various lessons about challenging stereotypes.
You can find the pack at:
‘The Anti-Racist Educator’ is a website that has been set up to share content about anti-racist educational approaches and language. It describes itself as “a safe space for all those who seek social justice through education” and it aims “to critically challenge racism and dominant ideologies by exploring teaching, discussing ideas and sharing learning resources for all to use.”
