Interactive session
Session title:
This PD opportunity will expose participants the role race plays in the lives of young children and ways to begin conversations and engage in activities that enable them to develop a more factual and objective understanding of race. The session will include dialogue/discussion, pop quiz questions, as well as self-reflective activities.
The session goals are:
1. To give participants an opportunity to explore their own racial past and experiences as an integral step in becoming comfortable talking with children about race.
2. Support participants in learning about when young children develop an awareness of race, including the ages at which various kinds of understandings occur.
3. Offer practical examples of how to respond when issues of race emerge as well as how to proactively introduce conversations and activities.
