Dr. Jeanne Chowning and Hanako Osuga at Fred Hutch sat down with us to discuss some of the curricular work that they have done specifically focused on race, racism, and genetics.
They talked about how to navigate these topics in the classroom, touching on ideas such as how race is not the same as ancestry. They shared with us a series of lessons and a lesson sequence, covering big ideas of what is race and what race isn’t.
Moreover, they shared a reflective module to support teachers as they learn and unlearn information about the systems of oppression around us.
