Please complete the following PRIOR to our Zoom session on October 6:

1. Readings & Podcast

READ the assigned readings (DT 9). Anti-Racism Practice Short Article: and Podcast:

2. Discussion Board

Go to Blackboard to the Discussion Board link and post to the "Session #5forum.

Write a discussion question based on this week’s assigned textbook reading (not the additional anti-racism practice article and podcast). Read the questions already posted, and do not repeat a question asked by one of your classmates. Your question should relate directly to an issue discussed in the reading and should require a thoughtful response. The Anti-Racism practice readings and podcasts will be addressed by the assigned discussion facilitator(s) during class.

A. Post your question. 

B. Read the questions posted by your classmates and respond to at least three of them. 

C. Respond to every student who responds to you. Do this in your own thread as well as the other threads you are participating in.

D. Continue participating in the threads until the module is over.

Note: If other students are not selecting your thread to participate in, perhaps it is because your question is too complex, confusing, or uninteresting. In this case, substitute another question.

3. Prepare for Blackboard Quiz (RAT#5)

The 5-question multiple-choice quiz will be on the DT9 reading. This RAT will be made available to you at your designated quiz time (3:40 pm or 6:30 p.m.). Our Zoom session will commence right after the quiz at 4:10 or 7:00 pm, depending on your course section.


In this session we shift to school psychology practice with young children and their families. Our anti-racism practice article discussions will begin with this session.
