Jane Elliot's work shows us that children can recognize difference and they can recognize when someone is being treated differently because of that difference. I am pleased to hear many of my friends with children wondering how to best talk to their children about the current unrest and the protests. While I do not have kids, I did watch the Sesame Street Town Hall on Standing Up to Racism and thought it was explained very well in a way that kids could understand. I have also done my best to share resources as I've found them.
I am wondering if this social experiment has been re-created more recently and if not would be interested in how it would work and what the discussion would look like among elementary school children in 2020.
