Event Details

This session for early childhood teachers, hosted by NMAAHC, Teaching for Change's D.C. Area Educators for Social Justice, and Project Unlearn will provide time for early childhood teachers to explore how to address issues of race, representation, and history in developmentally appropriate ways.

Many teachers face either the pressures to avoid difficult topics or to plunge in with little consideration of what is best for children at each stage of their development. This session will be a time for teachers to explore and discuss these issues surrounded by children's books in preparation for D.C. Black Lives Matter Week of Action in Schools.
