Embracing Anti-Bias Classrooms: A Response to Racism in America
As our nation grieves, processes, reforms, and tries to heal from racial bias, violence, injustice, and oppression, educators have the opportunity and responsibility to respond by advancing equity out of love and empathy starting within their classroom. But how?
In this edWeb podcast, the lead authors of the newly released book, Don’t Look Away, Embracing Anti-Bias Classrooms, participate in a roundtable discussion on how to explore and address issues of bias, equity, low expectations, and family engagement to ensure culturally responsive experiences. Equipped with the tools and strategies to promote classroom change, educators will be empowered to do the following:
- Learn how institutional racism becomes present in early childhood environments
- Discover how implicit bias, microaggression, and white privilege can play a role in undermining the learning experiences of marginalized Black and brown children and those who teach them
- Embrace anti-bias and anti-racist teaching approaches
- Implement best practices for creating culturally-rich and supportive classroom environments that protect children from social-emotional and psychological trauma by affirming personal healing
This edWeb podcast is of interest to preK through elementary teachers, school and district leaders, coaches, trainers, and childcare providers, owners, and administrators.Kaplan Early Learning Company
