Concretizing Antibias and Antiracism Into Practice

This past year has centered the need for racial and social justice movements in the classroom, but how do you go from consuming information to turning it into action?

Participants will explore what it means to develop your anti-bias anti-racist (ABAR) lens, and apply it to working with youth. We will look at examples of ABAR lessons and units of study across disciplines in a range of grade levels, and discuss strategies to create a long-lasting, sustainable practice.
