The Minnesota Department of Education has released resources that may be helpful in addressing conversations around diversity and inclusion.
Racism, violence and tragedies in communities and the news can be traumatic for children and youth as well as adults. In response to these incidents, educators and other trusted adults may want to provide opportunities for children and adults to talk about what is happening and share feelings, which can include fear, anger, sadness and frustration. Discussing the news and tragic events can help calm students and help them focus on their learning. You’ll find resources to support these conversations below.
