Reflecting on Anti-bias Education in Action: The Early Years
We’re thrilled to host a screening of the new film Reflecting on Anti-bias Education in Action: The Early Years, followed by a conversation with the film producers and with two of the teachers featured in the film.

The film focuses on teachers in diverse early childhood classrooms who are committed to equity on a daily basis. We watch those teachers use anti-bias strategies in early childhood classrooms and, also see them reflecting on their practices.

Anti-bias education giants Debbie LeeKeenan and John Nimmo produced the film as a resource for early childhood educators wanting to engage in anti-bias practices and featuring the voices and practices of fellow teachers. The film focuses on teachers in classrooms but also offers insights about anti-bias practice that are helpful not only to teachers, but also to any of us with young children in our lives.

Join us to watch the film and then to have a conversation with Debbie and John and with featured teachers Joyce Jackson and Nadia Jaboneta. As always, we welcome your questions and insights!
