Supporting Students This Mental Health Awareness Month

This Mental Health Awareness Month, we hope you find time and space to take care of yourself and support your students. These resources, including an article introducing the Crisis Text Line, recommend practices that can be used at the district, school or classroom level.

Teach and Learn About Voting Rights

As activists across the country push back against policies and legislation restricting the vote, we take time this week to honor those who have come before us in the fight for voting rights. We hope these resources, all of which celebrate the incredible contributions of the late Congressman John Lewis, help you learn and teach about voting rights—and encourage action for a more accessible democracy for us all.

May Is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month!

As you plan for the upcoming Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we encourage you to celebrate and teach the diversity of AAPI identities. Then, keep going by incorporating AAPI voices into your curricula all year long. You can begin with these resources.

Responding to the Chauvin Verdict

Today, Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges. But our legal system is still far from just, and many students may still be feeling a lack of closure. In critical moments like these, we know students look to educators for guidance. We hope you’ll reaffirm the value of Black lives. We hope you’ll create a space for students to process—not debate. And we hope you’ll get the support you need. These resources can help you hold space for critical conversations in the days to come.

Celebrating Arab American Heritage Month

During April, we uplift Arab American Heritage Month. These resources will help educators celebrate Arab identity, counter negative stereotypes, teach about Arab history and cultures, and ensure an inclusive environment that supports Arab American students this month and throughout the year.
