ADDRESSING BIAS TO CREATE CALM OUT OF CHAOS
1:30 – 4:15 p.m. Deep Dive Session
Healthy, positive relationships between teachers and students are key to student engagement. Educators must understand how bias impedes the development of relationships. In this workshop, examine how bias affects behavior management practices and understand how student/teacher need fulfillment ensures each child feels valued, leading to self-regulation and increased learning.
CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE LEARNING
Learning Objective 1: Learn how humans take in bias and how it affect our ability to connect with others who are “different than us”, including students and families, and learn about the complex identities of our students and how bias, prejudice, and stereotype threat affects their ability to fully engage and learn.
Learning Objective 2: Use the framework of Anti-Bias Education to interrupt the internalization of bias and stereotypes in children and adults.
Learning Objective 3: Unpack Glasser’s Theory of Basic Needs and Gossen’s Five Positions of Control and reflect on their own daily structures and practices to see how they are or are not meeting their students’ needs.
