To adapt to the constantly changing and complex political and social realities of 2020, ECE leaders need to integrate learning from their experience back into their practice and be able to fine-tune the assumptions and theories that drive their work. This facilitated session is for people interested in moving past teaching political correctness towards teaching sociocognitive conflict and intellectual growth.
Come spend an evening reflecting on our own biases so we can teach anti-bias. Together, well dialogue, explore, question, reflect, and grow in our understanding of how white culture undermines our work in achieving liberation for the next generation of artists, inventors, scientist, politicians, thinkers, and social activists.
Why I Should Attend:
Given that educators have a great impact on both families and the children they work with, it is critical for educators to develop a self-awareness of culture, bias, and discriminatory practices as well as to examine the effects of their beliefs, attitudes, and expectations. To help our Black, Brown, and Indigenous babies thrive, we must first understand the racist ideology America was founded upon, reflect on how we contribute to it, and work to dismantle it. We invite you to bring your questions and your thinking caps to this interactive session.
