Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll chose the book Teaching for Black Lives as his selection for “My Cause, My Cleats” 2022. Co-edited by OES Director for Equity & Inclusion Dyan Watson, the book includes essays, activities, poems, art, and other resources to help educators and families disrupt anti-Black narratives, while connecting curriculum to young people’s lives, concerns, and daily experiences.
Watson co-wrote the book with Jesse Hagopian and Wayne Au—all three of whom are editors for Rethinking Schools. Learn more at teachingforblacklives.org.
