    Published by Redleaf Press

    Start Seeing Diversity helps teachers recognize and reduce bias in young children by illustrating one community's effort to create a responsive child care program.

    Developed by teachers at Washington-Beech Community Preschool in Boston, this training handbook provides a framework for understanding bias among preschool children, reorganized for stand-alone use as a student text. Nine detailed chapters treat six areas of bias—gender, age, sexual orientation, race and ethnicity, economic class, and physical abilities—as well as the goals and guiding assumptions of anti-bias curriculum. Accompanying discussion questions encourage readers to examine their own memories and experiences.

    Perfect for pre-service and in-service teacher training, this helpful guide includes information-rich appendices containing:

    • Guidelines for challenging oppression and responding to incidents involving bias
    • A checklist for creating and assessing anti-bias environments
    • A guide to analyzing children's books
    • Directions for making photograph games like the ones used at Washington-Beech

    The book also includes sample scenarios, details for classroom implementation, suggested resources, and guidelines for group leaders. Softbound, 144 pgs.
