We will structure our online discussion around the learning outcomes of the seminar:

  • Reflect on our own identities and cultural lenses
  • Describe the four pillars of anti-bias education.
  • Discuss ways to identify and affirm children’s identities through the materials and social climate of the classroom.
  • Identify three ways that educators can create a classroom environment that supports positive identity development.
  • Recognize characteristics of picture books that provide children with windows and mirrors for exploring identity and intersectionality.
  • Consider how classroom materials can support ongoing inquiry into identities, relationships, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • Recognize that diverse materials are not enough and recognize the critical role classroom discussion and inquiry play in anti-bias education.
  • Propose ways to support children in forming peer relationships that value inclusion.
  • Identify principles and lenses that can be incorporated to further anti-bias practice.
  • Value the use of connecting rituals and routines in supporting children throughout the day.
