Discussing the DAY AFTER ELECTION GUIDE

By Jen Cort

Jen Cort is an education consultant in the areas of equity, inclusion, diversity and justice. In this podcast, Jen opens up a "third space"— a place outside our familiar home and work environments — in order that we might begin to engage in some of the provocative questions that need to be addressed. Listen in as Jen speaks with some of the leading thinkers and doers in the field.

The guide was written to support educators and administrators in preparing for the 2020 Presidential election. Published by the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities (Summer 2020), the DAY AFTER ELECTION GUIDE includes content on navigating classroom climate, communication, curriculum, legal considerations, professional development, and responding to challenges inside and outside of the classroom.
