Project READY (Reimagining Equity and Access for Diverse Youth) is a free, online professional development curriculum that includes modules for educators interested in improving their knowledge about race and racism, racial equity, and culturally sustaining pedagogy. The primary focus of Project READY is on improving relationships with, services to, and resources for youth of color and Native youth. All Mesquite ISD librarians have been going through the Project READY modules as our PLC focus for the year, and we have found them extremely powerful and worth our time. While the first module focuses on some issues specific to libraries, it is still worth viewing. However, the LET highly recommends that our district teachers and staff spend some time in Module 2: History of Race and Racism. The video below gives an overview of Project READY. Ask your campus librarian for more information.
