  1. Community Conversation - Difficult Conversations

    September 3, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

    We invite you to a community conversation about how we want to communicate together as a school community about particularly difficult and/or sensitive topics. This will be held in B780 at the SSW. Difficult, personal and often charged issues impact our lives and our world with tragic regularity. This conversation is a time to talk - ask questions, raise concerns and ideas, and talk together as a school community. To aid the conversation, space will be limited. (We know it's coming up soon, so if you miss it, don't fear! If there is a lot of interest in this topic, we can hold another session soon.)

    About the format. A few students and faculty have decided to try something different - smaller community conversations. Our hope is that this can take topics that lend themselves better to verbal dialogue off of email and into a face-to-face (or screen-to-screen!) environment. We will draw heavily on practices from intergroup dialogue and restorative justice.

  5. ENGAGE: Back to School: Advocating for BIPOC History in K-12 Curriculum ENGAGE: Back to School: Advocating for BIPOC History in K-12 Curriculum

    September 9, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

    A students' identity and self-concept is largely shaped by representations of their community in school curriculum, the media, and broader society. But when do Black, Indigenous, and other People Of Color (BIPOC) get a chance to share their own history? Are the contributions, and histories of oppression, of BIPOC communities fairly represented in our K-12 curriculum? How does the erasure of BIPOC history in K-12 curriculum affect learning outcomes and self-concept of BIPOC students? And others?

    Join us to discuss the whitewashed history we teach in our K-12 curriculum, from the arts and music, to science, civics, and math; and the fight of elected officials, scholars, and local activists pushing for curriculum reform at the policy and local levels. Speakers include State Senator Stephanie Chang, Novi School Board member and former Assistant Attorney General, Roland Hwang, Former State Representative Sherry Gay-Dagnogo, and University of Michigan LSA American Culture Professor of Arab American studies, Dr. Matthew Stiffler.
