Equity Matters: Confronting Implicit Bias

Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 3:30 p.m. CST


Implicit biases are the subconscious biases we all have that influence how we respond to others. To create equitable classrooms, educators must acknowledge their own biases and take steps to confront them. Let’s take the first steps—together! 


Equity Matters: Understanding Equity Literacy

Tuesday, February 28, 2017, 3:30 p.m. CST


Throw out deficit-based approaches to interacting with students and families experiencing poverty. Instead, use the four principles of equity literacy to define what equity should look like at school. Participants will draft a school action plan to create equitable policies and practices for all students and families.
