Since the police killing of George Floyd, he's seen more students posting on social media, admitting their lack of understanding of the black experience and calling for the school to doom or to become a place of inclusion for black students. There's a thin line between late Performative activism vs In a passionate activism that really brings about the change. And right now, I think Berkeley high that a train See sort of unearth whether the student body is really behind the changing once a change D centering European history would be one step, says Ward, just the history of chains. In the history of Wonder Chief Grady orders, But the entire history like we learn about the French Revolution and the Haiti Revolution is just aside. California's Department of Education is currently taking comment on a revised draft for an ethnic studies curriculum for all high schools across the state. Berkeley High has seen itself as a model for teaching ethnic studies because of its African American studies department founded in 1968, But a student congratulate from the high school without ever taking an ethnic studies course, focusing on how power structures shape history. Spencer Pritchard, who co chairs the department, says all Berkeley high students would benefit from this perspective. I definitely think that we reflected the typical like Berkeley liberalism where we know a lot of things to say, but when it comes to actions My knock it same and our diocese. Best light reinforce a lot of secret life friends narrative in our classroom, Pritchard says. The school can also take action by hiring more black staff that can go throughout high school, not having about teacher Berkeley High teacher Angela Coppola says the school loses potential teachers of color. Because it sends out offer letters too late compared to other district's, But she and Pritchard credit the high school with focusing on anti racism work, Coppola says That was the message given during a recent professional development Day for teachers. Every teacher has to be a writing teacher and teach literacy skills. Whether your science teacher in English teacher every teacher has to teach anti racism, Coppola says, figuring out how to create a virtual classroom that is mohr inclusive of black students. Is one of her goals right now. For their part, students are meeting on zoom to finish their anti racist resource guide before presenting it to the administration..

NSR Manchester but so you're sitting in for the coach many of us thought you were going to play Kansas city that look that look like the more likely scenario some of us actually unfortunately spent a bunch of time preparing for Kansas city trying to get ahead and that didn't work out so well for some of us but for your staff having to come back and travel on a Friday play on a Saturday against a team that you have not played this year although you did see even the pre season how ramped up just do things get very quickly to turn it around yeah well I mean that's one thing we have to do with personal apartment is kinda bomb deploy a different scouts to different games because at this time of year you you you never know how the seedings gonna end up on the a we were hopeful that we would we would get in and and we were we were we're stoked to be to be in the tournament and scouts got back late last night got an early this morning started putting together the advance report for that for the coaches to your point we know who played those guys last year in the regular regular season worked against them this past preseason and practice and then play them in the preseason so there's at least some familiarity with the personnel the actual players now it's about breaking down the scheme what are they trying to do how are they attacking this defense mom you know defensively how are they attacking display or or you know this this particular offense of set that you may be using so that's working accord rebel and his staff for mom hunker down right now you're going to all I try to get try to put a game plan together if you'd like to tweet John Robinson a question tweet your question or comment at Titans radio you can talk with the Titans general manager by calling the Xfinity X. fi hotline at eight seven seven eight four eight two six seven one eight seven seven eight four eight two six seven one stay connected to your team with Xfinity this is beyond why fight this is X. five only from Xfinity a proud partner of the Tennessee Titans we start with a call in Murfreesboro and we take that call from Spencer Spencer thanks for joining us tonight on the Mike Rabal show with John Robinson sitting in is our special guest mark John are you got nine grade Spencer Pritchard call him and good Arianna personal congradulations on on the big win yesterday were a fire really fighting for everyone to watch another week of football and hopefully many more after that I just want to congratulate you and coach go travel and you know the whole staff on putting together a great team and you know what not a great season to get us where we're at you know seems like everything kind of fell into place when needed three with bring it in and it won a game and watching him just your forests and Henry kind of growing off that and obviously AJ brown it made thousand yard yesterday and you know just it's a great feeling that you want to conquer gradually thank god the appreciate that Spencer yet no it's I mean it's been a lot of hard work from from a lot of different people mom from our coaches certainly the players of the trainers under Trish instead I mean there's been a lot of people that have put a lot of time our scouts preparing the advance reports for the coaches on a weekly basis on our opponent and you know to have a chance the last game of the season for the third year in a row for this football team the end to come away with it with a win it in and get in the term again and you know there it's you know it's we we we've got to go on the road when when a lot of football games but it's it's been done before and you know we're just we're just excited at the opportunity there's twenty teams right now that they wish they had they had a chance to determine like we do you did not have a veteran quarterback on the roster behind Marcus Mariota you knew you needed one so you traded for Ryan Tannehill why specifically was he the target well I mean I think you know he was he had played a lot of football in Miami and he had had some some ups and downs career wise but we thought from a skill set standpoint from an arm string standpoint from a mobility standpoint like there were a lot of similarities to Marcus and a guy that had been in the fire through through a lot of tough games over his career and and were able to kind of come up with something with with Miami there to kind of get him over here and you know he had kind of done some research on us and and we're certainly you know than the scouting process on on him and we thought it would be a good match he thought would be a good match so we so we swung a trade how long from start to finish did it take you to put all that together from evaluation to making the first phone caller them calling you or the process starting how long did that take to trade for Ryan Tannehill yeah I don't I don't know exactly from a from a time line standpoint you know three four five days you know something it's it's not something that you work together in five minutes you know when you come up with that there's a lot of discussions that have to go on internally with with the staff you know you want to get your scouts taking to get the coaches take mom now you you've got to talk to Miami and and get the permission to kind of start having those conversations if something you know might manifest itself so it's a pretty extensive process but one that we were able to kind of work through fairly seamlessly to get the deal consummated they got your seven last year and they have your for this year which you got a six in the deal and with that six you took David long junior who looks to be a real prospect how hard is it to come up with the the terms of something like that issue piece it together making sure you get that maximum value well it's like a it's kind of like when you go to the you know it's an ice cream store you always ask for a little extra on top you always out for a little wrinkle little sweetener mice so your **** for a little sweeter there at the end and and see if the if the if the by don't sometimes the guy behind the counter who put a few extra sprinkles on it sometimes it won't but it never hurts to ask David long is pretty good sweeter he's done he's done a pretty good job yeah he's I mean he's still got a ways to go I mean this time a year ago he was you know finishing up a West Virginia there and it's it's learning up a pretty complex defense that that the wrong but you know he's bought into the kicking game he's made some plays force on special teams and is growing as a defensive player and I made a big play force yesterday with that break up there at the end of the game on a tight end absolutely let's go back to the phones Spencer skews me it's showing in Memphis I apologize Sean but welcome to the Mike Rabal show our guest tonight John Robinson Titans general manager John it's a pleasure to talk with thank you Mike great job Michael and if the record special that you did our own across funny that you did excellent job with that thank you John before your talk with them and work with you gonna sell so it's a pleasure to finally talk with you Sir good good good to talk to somebody from god's country yes Sir yes Sir what he was doing a heck of a job in the future all from you know with this organization the franchise back to the twenty White I want to ask you are you now are starting to see the evolution of your your work takes corrugated AJ brown I'm John is three of those guys were taking in the second and third round now you're really starting to see them pay all those guys are you know along with all the reason why we just exploded as an office what what goes in the process of being so good I mean you had a track record of that before getting the Titans job what makes you so good Arafat and also as some of these guys start arriving after payday their second contract how much does your call to the to your ability to find the placement for them in the draft after negotiations with him on that first week creates contract both both great questions both both great points I think you know the one of the first things that I had to do one when I got here was was train the scouts on well what we're looking for in Titans what what are the traits you know physically and personally that were that were looking for employers are the type of football team that we're going to have the mindset of the player that we're gonna have and and instruct the scouts to look for these types of guys and then they have done a great job of bringing guys to the table and and and meeting with guys whether it's the all star game process the combine process we send our coaches on the road in order to private workouts and spend the day with a player because you know of a Johnny Smith for example we send Arthur to work with John or Smith so Arthur was a tight end coach at the time all orders going to be in the room with this guy every single day from the O. T. A.'s through training camp he's going to be his coach is going to spend more time with him than anybody else in the building so why not send that guy down to get to know the player and see if he's going to be able to work with him can you develop Pam and we've gotten good returns on all of that time that's been invested a from the scouts in B. from the coaches you're the second part of your question that's that's a tough one you have to look at Hey you know what's what's the what's the possibility of losing that player what's going to be the cost to maintain in all the rights to that player what does the pool of players look like in free agency can you get a similar player but you don't really know the player could you haven't spent time with him what's that guy going to cost what is the draft what's what's what's that supply lookalike mom at the end of the day we would love to try to keep every single player on the team that we can't keep developing them but you know the way to the way the CBS is set up now it just it makes a really really really hard to do that and we've been fortunate to get you a longer run on some players here and now we're just kind of see how it goes fun question tweeted to at Titans radio John if you had to pick a linebacker from our roster to play on offense and throw the football to who would be and why who that's a good question outside or inside I just says linebacker so could be either it could be either to play offense still like a landing Roberts did yesterday for the people back yeah I called customer first linebacker to catch a touchdown pass in a game sense Margaret Mike rebel yes you're one of one I'm good I would say the game that's a that's a tough question to play offense of course Bates this played out even for back I hope everybody is touched the ball yeah I haven't seen how will he throws a high throws J. on mom he's kinda nifty maybe he can make somebody mess maybe get there at Landry maybe the lender to play tai chi yeah they will they will go here Landry.
