This successor to The Anti-Bias Curriculum provides practical guidance to confront and eliminate barriers of prejudice, misinformation, and bias about specific aspects of personal and social identity thus helping staff and children respect each other, themselves, and all people.
Over the last two decades, educators across the nation and around the world have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in anti-bias work. The result is a richer and more nuanced articulation of what is important in anti-bias education. Individual chapters focus on culture and language, racial identity, family structures, gender identity, economic class, different abilities, holidays, and more.
