Inspire Compassion and Anti-Racism with Stamped

Help me give my students sets of "Stamped," By Jason Reynolds, a remix of a book by Ibram X. Kendi, that reveals what it means to be an "anti-racist," or "one who truly loves."

My Students

My students attend a large diverse public high school in a big city. We are part of a STEMM (Science Technology Engineering Math Medicine) magnet. English Language Arts is a place where students can explore how the arts intersect with all that science. In our classrooms, they have the opportunity to be surrounded by many different people with unique stories.

My students are intelligent, inquisitive, and enthusiastic about their studies.

They get excited when we use project-based learning to deepen connections between literature, current events, history, and STEMM-related issues. They care deeply about the future they are charged with shaping, and I am continually impressed with how eager they are to learn about ways to improve our world.

My Project

Jason Reynold's "Stamped" will pair with other works illuminating issues of race, culture, and identity, to offer texts that reflect the diversity of our communities, and reveal the vital contributions Black Americans and their co-conspirators have made in helping move our nation toward greater compassion, humanity, and human rights.

"Stamped" does a brilliant job of tracing our country's origins with style, humor, and compelling historical anecdotes, to help students understand the complexities of our present through the lens of our past.

By gaining a solid understanding of racist and anti-racist ideologies, and the fascinating stories of some of our most influential leaders, thinkers, and activists, students will have more tools to navigate the complicated world of right now.
