Systemic racism and racial bias negatively impact the social, emotional, and academic lives of non-white students, teachers, and staff in our schools. The multiple impacts of these issues are both immediate and long-lasting. In this course, participants will explore racial identity and racial privilege. Awareness, knowledge, and understanding of systemic inequity; of one's own racial and cultural identity; and students' racial and cultural identity are cornerstones for teaching that more effectively meet the need of all students, and in particular, non-white students and historically marginalized students.

More than ever before, teachers need to understand how- and what- to assess when seeking to understand the learning of students in the classroom. As our schools and classrooms become more linguistically diverse, teachers will benefit from knowing what assessment methods will be the most accurate, effective, and useful tools for driving instruction and making placement decisions for ELL students. The text, Assessment and ESL, is a comprehensive guide to assessment of English language learners.
