In developing the framework for anti bias child

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

In developing the framework for anti-bias child raising (my setting as a parent) I have relied greatly on the work of Louise Derman-Sparks. Derman-Sparks defines broad goals of an anti- bias curriculum and I am going to adapt them to my parenting. My child needs to be an active participant in this process. A good way to create that is to ask children about and have them explore their differences. I will create activities about bias by helping children to identify acts of discrimination and stereotypic images in their world. Using my child's interests and abilities, I will create lessons that encourage empathy towards others. These activities, lessons and teaching will encourage the child to solve problems, question, hypothesize, experiment, and develop her/his cognitive processes. The end result will foster my child's ability to stand up for themselves and others in the face of bias. Give specific examples. The first thing I will need to do is reflect on my own bias. I do not want those to interfere with my teaching. Play will include such things as multicultural dolls and toys. My child will be taught multiple languages from their first words. We will have children’s books of different languages for them to read. I also feel that local historical cultures are very important to understand. Incorporating Native America history and current cultural events in to my child’s awareness and education will be very important to me. The Heard Museum is an exception place

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
