In a recent edWebinar sponsored by Kaplan Early Learning Company, “Embracing Anti-Bias Classrooms: A Response to Racism in America,” four recognized early childhood education specialists, and lead authors of the newly released book Don’t Look Away, Embracing Anti-Bias Classrooms, emphasized that to challenge bias, educators have to recognize the role implicit bias, microaggression, and white privilege hold in undermining the learning experiences of marginalized Black and brown children.
Listen to a discussion on how to explore and address issues of bias, equity, low expectations, and family engagement to ensure culturally responsive experiences.
In this interactive edWebinar, participants will explore, discuss, and experience research-informed, classroom-tested approaches for culturally responsive teaching in mathematics.
A critical topic for schools, communities, and most importantly, our students, is what teachers do in the classroom to nurture ALL students, create a sense of belonging, and keep educational standards high. Only then can students, especially immigrant students and students of color, meet their potential and succeed in school and beyond. During a recent edWebinar, the presenters underscored that when schools make generalizations about particular student populations and their behavior, they strip them of their individuality, and these students become “invisible.”
The edWebinar will highlight how individual steps can be taken towards finding agency, racial identity validation, and community.
This edWebinar focuses on culturally responsive teaching (CRT) with students of all ages who are not native English speakers. The first part of the edWebinar introduces the basic principles of CRT. The second part covers a range of strategies and tips for putting CRT into practice.
