Halfway through the 2020 #8weeksofsummer blog challenge is time to consider a weightier issue. After a summer of protests over racial inequity, how will you and your students return to the classroom? Even if students do not experience privilege or oppression, they will have questions.
You still may be struggling with your approach to the next school year. Use this post to consider what you want to happen and how you believe your actions can impact your students, your classroom, and or your school. How do/will you address implicit bias at your school?
Share the idea of blogging with your colleagues as a way to process the end of the year that wasn’t. Take the ideas of the friends in this challenge and hopefully build a year prepared for multiple formats!
How do/will you address implicit bias at your school?
Have a Blog: You may blog on a traditional blog, podcast, or use Facebook; any platform with an independent URL for each post.
Write & Include: (1) This at the start of your post: “This post is week 4 of 8 in the #8WeeksofSummer Blog Challenge for educators.” and kindly link that sentence to https://wp.me/p4cW8a-30j.
And (2) please use the hashtag #8weeksofsummer in social media shares of the post.
Comment on my Prompt: Post a link to your blog in the comments of each of the 8 blog prompts in a timely fashion (We are on vacation, and you may not even know which day it is, so let’s say within 3 weeks of posts 1-7).
This 2020 #8weeksofsummer blog challenge runs June 12 – July 31, 2020, and is for any educator. The challenge prompts educators with the opportunity of reflection. Each prompt asks them to blog about their reaction, thoughts, experiences with some facet of their professional practice.
Check HotLunchTray.com June 12th and every Friday until July 31st for prompts.
Successful completion of all 8 weeks commenting/linking back/sharing via social media will result in one entry into the drawing for $100 USD Amazon Gift card one week after July 31st – when teachers need it most!

Interesting prompt. I have both personal and school district bias to discuss.
