Being a Black girl is joyful and magical, and yet, sometimes complicated and difficult. Research has shown that Black girls are viewed by their teachers as more aggressive and less innocent, and are more likely to be punished than their White counterparts. This session will offer a brief overview of the research surrounding Black girls in classroom settings as well as a few strategies that can be implemented in the classroom to center Black girls’ voices. We will also discuss ways that teachers can work to counteract their biases in regard to Black girls, and will look at a few student reflections about what they wish their teachers knew and understood about being a Black girl. This session is great for teachers of grades Pre-K through 12.
