Core Competencies: Professional Development & Leadership, Family & Community Partnerships, Level 4
Trainer: Tamra Dschaak, Sharon Enright
Every day, 250 children are suspended from school. Many are children of color, deprived of opportunities to experience learning at the same rate and quality as white children. This book study will lead early childhood professionals to explore and address issues of bias, equity, low expectations, and family engagement to ensure culturally responsive experiences. Importantly, this book study will challenge you to consider your perceptions and thought processes.
In order to participate, you will need to purchase the book Don’t Look Away: Embracing Anti-Bias Classrooms by Iheoma Iruka and complete pre-reading before each training session.
We would like everyone who attends our trainings to have the opportunity to benefit from their learning. If you require accommodations to fully participate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week in advance of the training.
