“This RaceBridges For Schools project and site were created following the successful run of an 8 year old live student organization called Catholic Schools Opposing Racism (COR) in the Chicago IL area. (2000-2008)
This outreach brought together high school students from city and suburbs for suppers and workshops from across the Archdiocese of Chicago to focus on race and race relations and the building up of inclusive and welcoming school communities.
This site continues that work. Our online classroom tools are for engaging in the urgent mission of seeking racial justice, creating welcoming schools and the learning of inclusive behaviors in a fun and safe environment.”
“Knowledge of text structure is critical for reading to learn. By identifying the organizational structures of texts, students can observe how authors arrange ideas and determine which kinds of structures are used to interrelate ideas.” Includes printables.
A classroom management tool for assigning partners. Students sign up for a partner at each hour. When partner work is required, the teacher picks the time and students confer with that partner. Includes link to pdf handout from Reading Quest.
