Creating and Anti-Bias Learning Environment

Written by Debbie Riek, Education Coordinator | Oct 2, 2009 2:39 PM

All students benefit from opportunities to learn about the perspectives and experiences of diverse groups. In a school where diverse populations are not present, it is important for the teacher to supplement their programming with visitors from other cultures and backgrounds and provide presentations on other perspectives.

ADL’s website offers early childhood educators a wealth of information on anti-bias approaches, including tips and unique ideas from educators on how to create anti-bias learning environments.
