Lessons from Prison

My Intro to Fiction Students in the prison education nonprofit that I work for have no Internet access, so I'm posting their lists. This one is called "How to Talk about Race with Grace"
  1. Respectfully
  2. Using "I" statements
  3. with historical context
  4. with mindfulness/ audience awareness
  5. with fairness
  6. non-defensively
  7. with compassion
  8. with political correctness
    this last term has gotten a bad rap lately, but it helps determine what counts for civility in a non-intimate group- this explanation is from the teacher.
