KCM is partnering with the Chicago Area Kodaly Educators chapter with the fabulous Amy Lewis, on a miniseries continuing the work on the topic of race in the music classroom. Be sure to sign up for the full two-part miniseries! Workshops will be held as two interactive webinars on Thursday, 7/30/2020 & 8/6/2020, from 1:00 – 3:00 pm, CDT. Check out our workshop webpage to register and access resources!

Part 1: Engaging in Critical Race Theory in the Music Classroom
Critical Race Theory (CRT) provides a lens to critically consider how race effects everyday life. Participants will engage and further understand the three tenets of Critical Race Theory (ordinariness, counter-narratives, and intersectionality), and how they relate to the music classroom.

Part 2: Practical Applications of CRT in the Music Classroom
Participants will continue to explore and discuss explicit connections to practical applications in the music classroom, as well as the current unrest we are experiencing.

The cost of the two-part miniseries is $20 for OAKE Members, and $30 for Non-OAKE Members. Profits will be donated to a midwest civil rights organization.
If you attended the April 2020 CAKE workshop on Critical Race Theory, you are welcome to just register for part 2 of the miniseries for $10 for OAKE Members, and $15 for Non-OAKE Members.
