Haven't taught with this so far but it looks very useful as a way to broach what can be a very controversial subject.

I have used chalkface resource books for a number of years and find them an excellent support to work I have done with excluded and disengaged youth informally and formally as part of alternative accreditation for these groups. The activities are youth friendly, relevant to the hard to engage and spoken in a language they understand. The anti-racist policy book, works through issues that all youth are involved in all areas of the West Midlands that we work with and has helped to break down barriers between peer groups and intergenerational conflict. I would recommend to anyone working with these groups
