There has been an increase in the number of incidences regarding racism and bigotry. Educators may not be equipped to help children process these events and make sense of the changing world around them. In this webinar, educators and parents will gain an understanding of how the construct of race is developed in young children. They will also be provided with strategies for discussing race and incidents of bias with students. The webinar will also review the role that educators play in providing a safe environment for children to explore their differences in a positive way.
In this webinar participants will:
Learn how children develop racial awareness and develop attitudes of race.
Identify strategies that parents can employ to support children dealing with issues of race.
Gain an understanding about anti-bias training for different age groups.
Learn best practices for bringing stakeholders together to support the positive social emotional development of students.
