Reese at ADL Upper School Head Selected by Anti-Defamation League Top Rated Best Private School in Hartford County CT

Upper School Head Selected by Anti-Defamation League

Watkinson School is pleased to announce that Upper School Head Ryan Reese was selected by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to be one of nine educators nationally to pilot ADL’s new Civics Education Program. ADL announced that this new program stems from the belief that, “…enabling students to explore their civic engagement and identities through an anti-bias and social justice lens is essential for creating more inclusive and equitable schools, communities and society.”

Reese attended a two-day professional development training in Chicago on August 12 and 13. Piloting this new curriculum involves teaching, and then providing feedback on,  six lessons that address the core civics themes of Structures of Democracy, Civic Participation, Social Justice and Civil Rights, Power and Privilege, Identity and Membership, and Media and News Literacy.
