Anti-Racism Workshop for Students

by  Banyan Global Learning

Program image

Building on the Sesame Street Town Hall “Coming Together: Standing up to Racism,” BGL presents part one of an SEL series to give children an opportunity to talk about racism, and how we can come together to stand up to it. Acknowledging that these conversations can be difficult and sensitive, BGL will provide a safe, supportive space for children to learn and talk about racism.

As Elmo’s dad said in the Sesame Street Town Hall, “Racism is a big problem in our country.” Together, we can stand up to it and make the world more fair, kind, and inclusive for everyone.

In this first part, we will begin by establishing clear definitions of important vocabulary that was introduced in Sesame Street’s Town Hall “Coming Together: Standing up to Racism.” After reading a story, we will provide an overview of three ways to help end racism that will be explored in the remainder of the series: Educate, Intervene, Take Action.

Our programs are taught LIVE and on location (time zone permitting) with TWO teachers — one driving the lesson progression and the other engaging from the field. These dynamic programs are unlike any educational program you have experienced. 

We have created a suite of virtual programs to reach all levels of learners in three main content areas: Social and Emotional Learning, Digital Citizenship, and Global Citizenship.

We love designing new programs, so if we don't currently have what you're looking for, just ask.

Banyan Global Learning believes in the power of live video to bridge cultural divides, expand empathetic thinking and prepare our students to navigate real life. We are mission-driven to create authentic connections that fulfill the needs of students and teachers alike.
