Teaching for Change/Social Justice Books Resources


Teaching for Change Curricular Planning Approaches

1. What aspect(s) of diversity can be part of this topic?

2. How can I use this topic/book to provide accurate information and counter misconceptions and stereotypes?

3. How can I use this book to support and strengthen children's innate sense of justice and their capacity to change unfair situations to fair ones?

4. What do I need to learn to teach this accurately?


Teaching for Change Four Goals of Anti-Bias Education

Goal 1: Each child will demonstrate self-awareness, confidence, family pride, and positive social identities. 

Goal 2: Each child will express comfort and joy with human diversity; accurate language for human differences; and deep, caring human connection.

Goal 3: Each child will increasingly recognize unfairness, have language to describe unfairness, and understand that unfairness hurts.

Goal 4: Each child will demonstrate empowerment and the skills to act, with others or alone, against prejudice and/or discriminatory actions.

From Anti-Bias Education for Young Children and Ourselves (Derman-Sparks, Olsen Edwards, 2010).
