Celebrating Growth: A List of Resources We Revised with Equity at the Center


In partnership with Justice Outside (formerly Youth Outside), and with guidance from José González, and The Center for Native Peoples and the Environment, the BEETLES Team has been working to revise our materials to better reflect equitable, inclusive, and culturally relevant teaching practices. We understand that knowledge is not static, and we’re full of gratitude to have the opportunity to deepen our understanding and know more now than we knew two or five years ago. With funding support from the National Science Foundation, and the Pisces Foundation, we have had the resources to dedicate time to this revision and reflection.

We’re a work in progress, and we wanted to take a moment to curate and celebrate the list of resources we’ve recently revised with a focus on equity, inclusion, and cultural relevance. This list is just the beginning – we plan to continue revising additional student activities and professional learning resources as a standing part of our commitment to anti-racist and anti-oppression work. We also acknowledge that we are still learning and growing, and may have made mistakes in our revisions. We still have room to grow in our learning, understanding, and approach. And, we hope that in several years, we’ll have learned enough to need to revise these materials again!
