Nyack Public Schools Equity and Inclusion Resource Guides
These resource guides are designed to provide supportive materials to empower our staff and students. The guides contain a comprehensive list of helpful resources such as articles, videos, grade level books, and the like. Our goal is to provide our building communities with tools that will educate and foster fruitful discussions as we continue to work towards eliminating institutional racism and engage in talks involving current events. Students need books that serve as both “mirrors and windows,” that reflect their own experience and give them insight into lives and experiences different from their own. Educators play a crucial role in providing students with the language to speak openly about social inequities and discrimination. These guides provide teachers and families comprehensive lesson plans, talking points, and media to continue evolving as developing inclusive education is a journey that never ends.
