Lesson Plans about Individual and Systemic Racism

ING offers the following curriculum free of charge for educators in middle and high schools as well as colleges and universities. The lesson plans supplement courses on ethnic studies, American history, world history, current events, government, civics and religion, and cover the following groups: Indigenous Peoples, African American, Latinx, Asian, Middle Eastern, Muslim, Jewish, and Hindu American communities.

This curriculum examines the history and origins of dominant narratives about these groups, the process of racialization that leads to implicit bias and racism, and how they continue to manifest in society today. The curriculum concludes with lesson plans about the power of counter narratives through the voices of the affected groups, as well as individual and collective actions for countering racism.  Also available to supplement this curriculum is a live panel presentation (see lesson plan #10) that educators can schedule free of charge here.
