Broward College lists resource for professors to ‘incorporate’ BLM into the classroom

A page on the Broward College library website states that it wants professors to incorporate the BLM movement into classes and to “address the social response to the notion of All Lives Matter.”

The library resource website notes that “Our goal is to ensure that our colleagues understand why #BlackLivesMatter (and address the social response to the notion of All Lives Matter), focus on social justice, and create an atmosphere of civil discussion on race.”

The first section is “Critical Thinking and BLM,” and lists various questions about how to implement critical thinking along with the BLM movement.

The second section is “Pedagogy and Black Lives Matter,” where it lists academic articles and articles from The Chronicle of Higher Education. The first PDF titled, “Teaching Race, Racism, and Racial Justice: Pedagogical Principles and Classroom Strategies for Course Instructors,” goes over various topics such as “White students may resist confronting issues of race and racism,” and, “Internalized oppression may complicate participation for students of color.”

The article states that “White students may resist confronting issues of race and racism,” in part, because they believe the “myths” that success comes from effort and labeling themselves as “innocent bystanders of racism.”

The second study listed, focused on the experiences of “White faculty who incorporate an anti-racist framework into their college classrooms.”
