Please Join Us for a discussion about anti-bias education in our field

Reflecting on Anti-Bias Education in Action: The Early Years

Facilitated by Nadia Jaboneta and Debbie LeeKeenan

Some questions for your reflection are:

  • What strategies do you notice teachers use to implement anti-bias education?
  • What might the teachers need to have done before they started?
  • How would you involve families in anti-bias work?
  • How do your intersecting social identities (e.g. race, gender, language) influence this work?
  • What might you do differently in your context and classroom?
