Start Seeing Diversity: The Basic Guide to an Anti-bias Classroom
Redleaf Press, 1999 - Education - 144 pages
Covers the anti-bias curriculum used at the Washington-Beech Community Preschool. Part 1 gives a summary of the 4 goals of an anti-bias approach and 8 underlying assumptions. Part 2 contains individual sections that address 6 specific areas of bias: age, gender, sexual orientation, economic class, physical abilities, and physical characteristics. Each section provides several concrete examples of the ways that bias comes up in a classroom, as well as strategies to support children's development of strong self and group identities, their ability to recognize and think critically about bias, and their capacity to stand up for themselves and others.
