anti-bias teaching

Britt Hawthorne provides anti-bias teaching for school administrators, teachers, and other educators to create equitable learning environments for students from preschool to high school.

If you are a school leader interested in expanding your knowledge of anti-bias education and anti-racism, you are in the right place!

Educators have a special responsibility to create culturally supportive learning environments for the learners they work with every day. It can be difficult to know where to start when addressing your personal bias, not to mention noticing and correcting the bias as it begins to form in young children. Britt helps educators, like yourself, looking for guidance in how to foster strong, supportive relationships in the classroom.

build your anti-bias and anti-racist classroom

How can we, as educators, transform our learning spaces into supportive, unbiased environments for learners of all ages? Anti-bias education focuses on creating a learning environment equitable for every facet of human difference—including race, ability, learning styles, culture, family structure, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and age. Learn how to make your classroom more inclusive, unbiased, and inviting to differences.

Anti-bias education empowers young learners to build confidence through establishing strong self-identities, develop critical thinking skills, and foster empathy for their classmates.
