Miscellaneous Teaching Resources
Included below are links to resources I have used to teach about race, feminism, and gender issues. In some cases, they link to web pages, but in most cases, they link to pdf versions of those pages, because things sometimes disappear on the internet.
Note: Some of these articles contain profanity. Review them carefully before using them with your class.
- “Is Diversity for White People?” — Chapter one of Jeff Chang's We Gon' Be Alright: Notes on Race and Resegregation.
- “What A Time to be Alive: On Student Protest” — Chapter two of Jeff Chang's We Gon' Be Alright: Notes on Race and Resegregation.
