Teachers, the time has always been right to be intentionally inclusive to all your students. This workbook gives you tangible strategies for teaching in anti racist ways when professional development isn't enough and when going to school takes too much time and money.

The Anti Racist Teacher: Reading Instruction Workbook allows reflection and for you to make your own choices for application.

It's always been time to be culturally aware and teach our students the same. The needs are in front of us and cannot be denied.

"This book has really helped me to guide my thinking. And it also keeps me in constant reflection about what it means to be an anti racist teacher." Dr. Christy H.
