I read The Anti-Bias Curriculum (1989) early in my career and it was life-changing. It was the start of my anti-oppression training and it led me down the path of being an ally. I checked to see if the book was still available, and found this newer edition (2010). Anti-Bias Education is a workbook for early childhood educators to help them create an early childhood philosophy and classroom environment: anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-ableist, anti-classist and more. It gives concrete examples of ...more

This is the most helpful book I've read so far for ages 3-7 or so (really 3-5 but I think it can apply up a bit).
- Clear ideas and themes
- Practical ideas for the classroom
- Lots of quick model conversations with children inserted into the text

Any recs for a similar book for late elementary?

For a textbook, it was a pretty interesting read, not dry like some textbooks.

More geared toward early childhood but still some good takeaways, especially on language and problem solving.

It is rare that I actually enjoy reading a textbook, so take note. Although probably not super interesting to people who aren't trying to educate or raise children, this is a great text for those who are. It focuses on the importance of equality and understanding others, examining your own ideas of the world and how you came to them, and then reaches outward to explain how children perceive things adults often have (conscious or unconscious) biases about (race, people with disabilities, gender, ...more

It seems to me that each of us is raised with bias for our own culture and it takes a conscious effort to work with young children and build a program based on being anti-bias. This is not a judgmental statement but just an observation of being a human. I found Anti-Bias Education for Young Children and Ourselves to be an excellent classroom resource to make me more aware to the differences in cultures of the children in my classrooms and how I could make them part of a new school community that ...more

I like this book for its clear goals, strategies, and examples with the voices of teachers and parents. Fairness along the lines of race, gender, class, culture, disability, family structure, age, etc. is never going to be achieved if we are not conscious of our own bias and the bias of other people. As I read the book, my heart sank because our current education program does not really seem to be using such an anti-bias education approach as a central focus.

I had to read this book for an Anti-Bias class that I am taking this fall, and though I would get a head start. Well, I think everyone in the world should study this book and topic no matter even if it not mandatory. I know that I learnt a lot and hope I can remember what I have leant to be a better citizen to society!
This book offers basic tips on how to respond to prejudice and discriminatory behavior and shares activities to foster learning about others in respectful, inclusive ways.
