Dr. Debbie Reese Discusses Misrepresentation of Native Americans in Literature with the 8th Graders

Throughout the year in their Individuals and Societies class, 8th Graders are examining the history of the United States from the "discovery" of America by Christopher Colombus through the Civil Rights Movement. Individuals and Societies Teacher Guillaume Roper-Sirvent and Librarians Maria Falgoust and Eli Hetko invited Dr. Debbie Reese, a scholar, and educator from the Nambé Owingeh nation, to come and speak with the entire 8th Grade to deepen students’ awareness of how Native Americans are way too often not taken into consideration in most historical, as well as fictional, books.

Middle School Assembly: Q&A with New York Times Political Reporter Matt Stevens

Middle Schoolers Dive Deeper into their Summer Reading on Racism and Anti-racism

What is history? How is history much more than simply a recording of dates and facts that are significant only to the past? In what ways is racism woven into the fabric of American institutions? Where do you see evidence of this today? In what ways is racism embedded in practices, policies, and laws? What parallels can you draw between the past and present ways racist roadblocks, potholes, and loopholes continue to persist? In what ways do assimilationist, segregationist, or antiracist stances show up in your daily lives? To what extent do all citizens of a democratic society have a responsibility to disrupt the racism that is embedded in the English language? These questions were some of the many that the student reading group of rising 7th and 8th Graders reflected upon this summer. All rising 7th and 8th graders were assigned Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Ibram X. Kendi and Jason Reynolds for their summer reading. Katie Rogers, MYP Coordinator and Middle School English Language & Literature Teacher, created this additional optional reading group for students to join weekly as a space to help process and discuss their reading experience together.
