CORE PD: Breaking Implicit Bias
Eligible To Attend
Site Director, Site Supervisors, Assistant Director, Ed. Specialists/Instructional Coordinators, Nonprofit leaders, and Senior Group Leaders
Every member of a school’s faculty and staff brings their implicit bias to their work with students. The most effective educators name and interrogate those biases, including confronting how they impact students, and actively work toward breaking them. The best way of breaking our natural impulse to generalize about people is to get to know them as individuals. In this session, we will read and discuss excerpts from stories by teens about how being known by their teachers—or, at a minimum, having their teacher communicate that they want to know them–has benefited the writers socially, emotionally, and academically.
