“Ah Ha” Addressing cultural awareness and implicit biases: Focusing on building a cultural responsive environment accepting and appreciating all children regardless of race, gender, mental and physical ability 

Feb. 28th  May 28th  June 13th  

Select your date and register. 

Culturally responsive classroom culture exists when classrooms are safe spaces where students are seen, valued, cared for and respected as their full selves. Our unconscious social biases form involuntarily from our experiences. For example, as we are repeatedly exposed to actual incidences or media portrayals of minority men and women, those associations become automated in our long-term memory. These biases are reinforced on a daily basis without us knowing, or thinking consciously about it. Stereotypes reflect what we see and hear every day, not what we consciously believe about what we see and hear. It is possible for us to hold unconscious stereotypes that we consciously oppose.

Because we are, by definition, unaware of our automatic, unconscious beliefs and attitudes, we believe we are acting in accordance with our conscious intentions, when in fact our unconscious is in the driver’s seat. It is possible for us to treat others unfairly even when we believe it is wrong to do so. Cognitive neuroscience research has taught us that most decisions we make, especially regarding people, are “alarmingly contaminated” by our biases. Our assessments of others are never as objective as we believe them to be.

This session will provide educators with the tools to be able to address cultural bias in the school among teachers and its implication in teaching children. Participants will reflect on their own bias and build on trust and commitment to provide all children with a quality education. This training will also provide activities that “show” rather than “tell” how we as educators can address cultural awareness and reduce bias to ensure all kids receive a quality education no matter the race, gender, mental and physical ability.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will understand implicit bias and its impact on decision making in schools and classroom settings-Address the elephant in the room. Processing our own attitudes and value systems.

  • Participants will understand implicit bias and the facilitation of Planning Culturally Responsive Instruction

  • Participants will understand microagressions that affect relationship building of parents, students and all stakeholders.
