CARE Review Tool

What messages are teaching resources sending to students? Antiracist educators learn to ask that question with every instructional choice they make. CARE’s resources review tool walks you through a simple set of questions aligned to the CARE Antiracist Principles. Use it to sharpen your antiracist lens by evaluating materials you’re already using in your classroom.

What teaching resources can you review? Anything you use with students – including books, websites, videos, infographics, individual lessons and even station activates. In fact, we think looking at smaller teaching resources – the kind of use in a single lesson – is the best way to get started.

Completing your first review is easy and takes about 10 minutes following these easy steps.

  1. Login or register if you’re a new user
  2. Choose a teaching resource
  3. Search to find your selected resource in the library, if it’s not there, you can add it
  4. Do the review
  5. Get the results

As you review more resources, you’ll get a better sense of the strengths and gaps in your materials. Equally important, you’ll be contributing to a trove of teacher-created evaluations that we’ll be using to elevate exemplary antiracist materials in the future.

School and district leaders can use the tool to assess strengths and gaps across multiple classrooms. Interested in bringing the tool to your schools? Contact us care@stand.org.

“{T}he tool helps us pause, think about the text, consider important questions about what the text represents, WHO it represents, why its argument/viewpoint is set in this way, and “leads” one to think about how to use critical lenses to use this text in more meaningful ways with students.”CARE Tool User

By using the review tool, you’re not just helping yourself – you’re helping your students. You’re also helping CARE build a knowledge base that’s informed by the experts: educators like you.
