Anti-bias curriculum is an approach to early childhood education that sets forth values-based principles and methodology in support of respecting and embracing differences and acting against bias and unfairness. Anti-bias teaching requires critical thinking and problem solving by both children and adults. The overarching goal is creating a climate of positive self and group identity development, through which every child will achieve her or his fullest potential.
Teaching for Change serves these goals through:
- Offering 12 recommended booklists that accompany the best selling NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) publication Anti-Bias Education for Young Children and Ourselves.
- Publishing two DVDs: Anti-Bias Curriculum, companion film to Antibias Education, and Equity in Early Childhood Literacy, a 26-minute film documenting how three teachers promote equity and literacy.
- Featuring an Early Childhood Education blog by author Louise Derman-Sparks on our webstore.
- Offfering free downloadable PDF articles in English and Spanish on the Classroom and Environment, Cultural and Racial Diversity, Working With Parents, Working with Educators, Identity Development, Language Development, and Parent Resources.
