Overview: 

In this 3-hour workshop, educators will practice holding agreements and brave space for courageous conversations. Participants will be guided in reflection related to their social identities and affinity groups, and will focus on defining terms that bring consciousness to how biases are formed – in order to allow educators to make choices about how they function in their classrooms and buildings. Educators will learn about the role of selective attention and how we become conditioned. Space to explore the impact of implicit bias on BIPOC students will also be provided, as well as how to create a culture of inclusion, accountability, and anti-racism.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand and practice agreements for brave space.
  • Practice courageous conversations and constructivist listening.
  • Define implicit bias, stereotypes, interpersonal, and systemic racism.
  • Build awareness of selective attention and its role in implicit bias.
  • Process impact of implicit bias on BIPOC students.
  • Gain strategies for creating a culture of inclusion, accountability, and anti-racism in the classroom.

Additional Details:

We often talk about the essential need for kids to feel a sense of belonging within their educational settings. In order to build a sense of belonging for ALL students, we have to make space to bring awareness to unconscious bias we have related to social identities, and particularly race. We must address the culture of white supremacy that permeates every classroom. Once educators are able to bring awareness and understanding to their biases, they are able to make choices about how to build a classroom culture that is deeply inclusive – and one where all students feel valued for their unique lived experiences. This workshop will allow educators to be curious with themselves, process their lived experiences with colleagues, and commit to creating a culture of anti-racism.
