In this interactive workshop geared for pre-k through middle school teachers, as well as anyone who works with children in an educational capacity, participants will first learn about the research showing that kids see race from the time they are babies. Next, participants will learn why it’s important to talk about race and the difference between color-blind vs. multicultural approaches to race. Teachers will be introduced to lesson plan ideas on how to talk about race in the classroom. The workshop includes videos, a podcast component, and an interactive application demonstrating the concept of implicit bias.
