Teaching Scholarship Circles
Readings about race: Exploring race in the college classroom
Presenter(s): Jessie Daniels (Sociology), Kirsten Grant (Chemistry), Stephanie Margolin (Library)

This January, join us for a 4-part, weekly Teaching Scholarship Circle (TSC) where we will read and discuss selections, considering how this literature might be used in our classrooms and its relevance for us and our students.
