This research will focus on studying and creating anti-racism curriculum. Students will engage in research to explore what kinds of curriculum currently exists for elementary-college level students. We will create a literature review that summarizes strengths and drawbacks of the anti-racism curriculum we find. This research project will also include conducting interviews, as well as self exploration about how we developed our own racial identities and implicit biases by completing autoethnographic activities. As a group, we will reflect on meaningful ways to engage learners of all ages in reflecting on this important topic. Based on the goals and skills of team members, the research group could work with TAMU faculty and students and lead discussion groups. The plan is that a collective research project on anti-racism will emerge from the collaborative efforts of all participants. Ultimately, a paper for publication could be submitted to a journal, based on this research.
