This introductory session by anti-bias/antiracist (ABAR) teacher-educator and Montessorian, Britt Hawthorne, is designed to help educators take the first steps to develop critical cultural consciousness within their teaching practice and equip them with a common language to assist with navigating discussions around diversity and justice in the classroom.
By attending this session, attendees will leave with an understanding of how children develop racial and ethnic prejudices early in life, and how to respond to pre-prejudice. Participants will also learn how to create a developmentally appropriate anti-bias environment.
Presenter: Britt Hawthorne
