Diversity, Inclusion, and Equality: Teaching from the Inside Out

with Debbie Laurin, Ph.D

November 21, 2020 8:30a-1:30p || Cost: $40

We will cultivate self-awareness about cultural development. What norms and values were given to you by your own national and ethnic culture? Increasing cultural competency requires developing self-awareness of the cultural lens through which you make meaning when you encounter diversity. Also developing awareness of the different perspective of the diverse other. We will focus on the child and seek to understand anti-bias education in the early childhood setting. Johanna Laurelin will lead Eurythmy.
