Growing Anti-Bias School Culture: A Grassroots Approach for Early Childhood and Elementary Schools
Anti-bias work with children is an essential component of developing a school culture of advocacy and citizenship. But how do we get there?
- What does it mean to grow an anti-bias culture in an early childhood or elementary school setting?
- How do you shift the thinking of faculty?
- How can parents be engaged on this journey?
- And most importantly, how do we weave this work meaningfully and appropriately into the daily lives of children?
This presentation will follow the development of anti-bias work in PreK-6th Grade settings, exploring the early steps of the movement and the curriculum and culture that has emerged, and is still emerging. Participants will explore the concrete process of growing an anti-bias movement, collaborating with faculty and administration and implementing this essential work in early childhood and elementary classrooms.
Leading the workshop will be Lesley assistant professor of early childhood education Dana Bentley and educators from Buckingham Browne & Nichols School (Marissa Clark, Anthony Reppucci, Gabby Mbeki, Stevie Olson,and Betty Chan).
Free and open to the public.
