Talking About Race with Children

This workshop explores how to talk about race and anti-racism with children in a classroom setting. The Bank Street community affirms that teaching and learning are expressions of justice. You will be introduced to concrete examples from an existing social justice curriculum utilized in the Bank Street School for Children. The curriculum is based on Bank Street College's guiding belief that human beings learn best in the context of meaningful relationships and through doing, making, and changing the world around us. Participants will leave with tools and ideas that they can try out in their own classrooms in the fall.
