Talking About Tough Topics
What happened at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 has left some of us wondering how we talk about it with our children. NPS has compiled a few resources to help families talk to their children about the events that occurred in Washington, D.C.
Below are resources for teachers and families to learn more about systemic racism, how to talk about race, and learning more about equity. These resources have been recommended by our NPS faculty and other educational and equity experts.
