See one community's effort to create a responsive child care program and learn to recognize and combat bias.

Organized for stand-alone use as a student text, the training handbook provides a framework for understanding bias as it emerges among preschool children. 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.

The accompanying DVD provides several concrete examples of bias coming up in the classroom, and offers strategies to promote children's respect for diversity.

An essential anti-bias resource for trainers, directors, and instructors, the Start Seeing Diversity book and DVD set also includes sample scenarios, details for classroom implementation, suggested resources, and guidelines for group leaders.
