Social Studies


Schools are places that help students make sense of the world around them. Talking to students about issues like racism and protest can be difficult even in the best of times when we are actually with our students and not just looking at them through screens. Nonetheless, these are important conversations and important times. Should you wish, here are a few resources to assist in speaking with your children about these issues.

NASP – National Association of School Psychologists
Chicago Public Schools – Say Their Names
Talking about Race (National Museum of African American History and Culture)
