Resources for #ScholarStrike from the Faculty of Education

Queen’s Faculty of Education has created Anti-Oppression/Anti-Racism Resources for Educators to help local elementary, secondary, and post-secondary teachers and instructors bring ideas and lessons from #ScholarStrike into their classrooms.

#ScholarStrike is a labour action and teach-in happening on Sept. 9 and 10.

This selection of resources provides guidance for teachers from early childhood education to university and was created by faculty, staff, and students at the Faculty of Education, led by Alana Butler.

“As a Black Canadian, it has been very difficult to witness all the racial violence this past summer. For #ScholarStrike, I wanted to do something positive that would have an impact on educating our youth,” says Dr. Butler, Assistant Professor of At-Risk Learners and Student Success. “I believe that education is one way to eliminate racism and discrimination in our society. I am proud to be a member of a Faculty of Education that promotes equity and inclusion. I am also grateful to my colleagues who made such wonderful contributions to this guide.”

Rebecca Luce-Kapler, Dean of the Faculty of Education adds: “Inclusion and diversity is the centre of gravity for our faculty. It is critical that we support students after they leave us to be progressive,ethical leaders in education. By developing and sharing resources such as this, we hope to support our alumni and local community in bringing lessons and discussions about anti-racism, diversity, and equity into their classrooms.”
