Personal Bias in the Multicultural and Multilingual Child Care Setting

Wednesday, 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm Free

WIDA Examining Personal Bias in the Multicultural and Multilingual Child Care Setting” will define multiculturalism and multilingual learning and bring participants to a level of awareness about bias in society. It will expose ways in which our culture contains subtle and obvious biases. Participants will reflect on their own level of awareness and how it changed due to classroom activities. Part I: This workshop will define multiculturalism and help participants understand how to incorporate and celebrate true multiculturalism within the classroom.

Participants will identify the parts of their curriculum that need work and change in order to remain anti-biased. Participants will develop an action plan for each area of their curriculum that will allow them to implement changes immediately.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, learners will be able to:

    • examine personal bias about their community, cultures, and personal lives;
    • recognize how to embrace a variety of cultural and linguistic backgrounds from a strengths-based approach; and
    • plan changes in curriculum and practice to reflect learning experiences from the training.
