About This Webinar

Black girls experience school discipline for a host of reasons—many of them associated with the increasingly punitive responses to student behavior and the absence of alternatives to exclusionary discipline in schools. Using social-behavioral research, as well as before and after interactive animated video scenarios, this session from Women in the Room Productions will help teachers increase their capacity to interrupt school-to-confinement pathways by helping teachers create a positive environment where students feel safe and cared for. These self-paced learning videos are designed for teachers to increase self-awareness and identification with the video content and master skills and concepts.
