Teachers, teacher leaders, and administrators will participate in large- and small-group sessions to learn about research on implicit racial bias and how it may be an underlying cause of racial disparities in achievement, discipline, and student experiences (i.e., climate/culture of school). We will explore the cognitive processes and historical narratives that make implicit biases so troublesome. We will learn research-based strategies for overcoming the influence of implicit bias and will develop individualized professional development plans for ongoing learning and change.
A component of the work will be to improve our ability to analyze data through the lens of racial equity.
In this course, participants will explore their own racial identities and how that impacts their work in education. Therefore, participants must be willing to discuss race and racial disparities and to investigate their own practices and biases.
