Don’t Look Away - How to Embrace Anti-Bias Classrooms Now
Show Notes

This edWeb podcast is sponsored by Kaplan Early Learning Company.
The webinar recording can be accessed here.

Following their widely successful edWebinar, Embracing Anti-Bias Classrooms: A Response to Racism in America, the authors of Don’t Look Away: Embracing Anti-Bias Classrooms participate in a roundtable discussion on how to embrace anti-bias classrooms and anti-racist teaching by creating affirming and culturally grounded environments that protect children from psychological trauma and heal them from the inside out. 

This edWeb podcast continues to call upon all early education professionals to lean in as “sheroes” and “heroes” in the lives of children and as potential change agents in children’s and families’ lives. This is critically important as we continue to deal with two pandemics—COVID-19 and racism. Listeners learn the following:

  • What an anti-bias classroom is
  • How anti-bias classrooms foster culturally relevant teaching
  • Why it is important to have anti-bias, culturally relevant classroom environments
  • How implicit bias, microaggression, and white privilege undermine the excellence and learning of minoritized Black and Brown children and those who teach them
  • How institutional racism impacts early childhood care, learning, and environments
  • How to utilize tools, strategies, and partners in ensuring that we deliver on the promise of education, especially for those who helped to build it
  • The authors’ latest projects and reports that are calling for anti-racist policies to support Black families and other families of color, and those who teach them

This edWeb podcast is of interest to teachers, school and district leaders, coaches and trainers, and child care providers of the PreK through elementary levels.
