Event description

Description

This interactive workshop helps teachers learn how to effectively implement anti-bias instruction in their classrooms. Participants will explore practical strategies for accomplishing academic and social-emotional goals side by side. They will discuss learning conditions that honor all identities and reflect diversity, equity and justice. After exploring ready-to-use materials, applying rigorous standards and planning ways to incorporate research-based teaching practices, participants will leave the workshop with ideas and tools for transforming their classrooms and schools.

Participants will learn to:
• Incorporate the Teaching Tolerance Social Justice Standards to create and sustain classroom and school environments that honor diversity, equity and justice.
• Speak up—and teach students to speak up—against bias and injustice.
• Build a collaborative and respectful learning community with a diverse group of learners and educators.

This workshop is open only to educators. Participants may include:

• Current K–12 teachers, administrators and counselors.
• Pre-service teachers.
• Educators who teach or coach K–12 teachers, administrators and counselors.
