@wwndtd @ChristieNold @ProjectLITComm @jarredamato We have a brain break game that we play that seems to have shifted us into a place of disarmament and honesty in talking about race/identity together.
It’s in math, and the idea is that kids write 3 true statements on an index card:

1st one: True for you + most/all of class.
