Anti-Bias, AntiRacist (ABAR) Education Workshop – Friday, January 5
January 5, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm| $50
This one-day workshop presented by Crossroads Antiracism is designed for educators working in all settings including early childhood, religious education, after-school programs, K-12 and private schools, and teacher education programs at colleges and universities.
Anti-bias, antiracist (ABAR) education supports all children’s full development in our multiracial, multilingual, multicultural world and gives them the tools to stand up to prejudice, stereotyping, bias, and eventually to institutional ‘isms’.
The four Anti-bias Education Goals are integral to the anti-bias/antiracist education training model:
- Each child will demonstrate self-awareness, confidence, family pride, and positive social (group) identities.
- Each child will express comfort and joy with human diversity; accurate language for human differences; and deep, caring human connections.
- Each child will increasingly recognize unfairness, have the language to describe unfairness, and understand that unfairness hurts.
- Each child will demonstrate empowerment and the skills to act, with others or alone, against prejudice and/or discrimination.
