Event description
A workshop designed to dive deeper into ways we can support children's learning pathways and build community in the classroom.

About this Event

Overview:

This workshop is a 2 part series.

In Part 1:

In this interactive workshop, we will explore how children develop multiracial identity and how adults can support all children's healthy racial identity development. Participants will practice researched-based strategies to limit the effect of society's distorted racial messages. Through self-reflection, large- and small-group activities, participants will develop their own capacity to support multiracial children and families and they will leave with resources to continue learning more. Part 1 will happen on July 14th, 2021 from 5:30pm to 7:00pm PST.

In Part 2:

After a chance to sit, reflect, reimagine and implement into your curriculum, program, environment, and engagement, the strategies and thinking lens on ways to support multi-racial children, we'll be rejoined by Ijumaa to debrief lessons learned, roadblocks that arose, and other ideas you came up with! Come prepared with your questions, comments, and thoughts! Part 2 will happen on Oct 7th, 2021 from 5:30pm to 6:30pm PST.
