Are you interested in how issues of race and racism impact teaching and learning at BMCC? Would you like to incorporate topics involving race and racism in your classes? Do you wonder how you, as an instructor, can facilitate and help create an environment where you and your students feel comfortable about addressing issues and topics related to race and racism? In this Brown Bag session, we will discuss and share some of the successes and challenges of teaching and learning about race and racism in the classroom. The discussion will be led by Professor Jennifer Delfino (Academic Literacy and Linguistics), and moderated by Professor Evelin Gamarra-Martinez (Modern Languages). Professor Delfino will draw from her experiences teaching Linguistics courses such as Language, Race, and Ethnicity, Language and Culture, and Academic and Critical Reading.

This session is part of a faculty-led series on pedagogy that takes place once a month in CETLS. Each meeting will focus on a specific topic related to teaching and learning. We will discuss effective teaching strategies as well as challenges in a non-formal environment. Please bring your own lunch!
