It is our hope that the teaching resources shared here help you as teachers create safe spaces for students to express their thoughts and feelings. These conversations may be challenging, and will likely evoke a range of emotions -- discomfort, anger, and even disinterest -- however, these are among the most important conversations that both parents and educators can have with young people.

We must work together as a community to ensure that our students learn from these powerful, albeit troubling at times, moments in American history.
