11 Ways to Keep Current on Anti-Bias Education This Summer

For most educators, summer is a time for reflection, relaxation and rejuvenation. The summer also provides the time and space to learn something new, read articles and review curricula that you haven’t had time to do during the school year and to connect with other educators without the pressure of time. Below are 11 ways for educators, and others who work with children, to take advantage of new resources and brush up on their anti-bias education practices.

1. Spend an hour watching one of our free webinars and explore topics such as Empowering Students to Combat Bullying, Using Current Events to Teach About Bias, Bullying and Social Justice, The December Dilemma and several more. You can watch them anytime.

2. Reflect on bullying, social media and other social-emotional development issues by reading Rosalind Wiseman’s (best-selling author and bullying prevention expert) instructive essays in Rosalind's Classroom Conversations.

3. Visit our Current Events Classroom and consider approaches to bring current events into your K-12 classroom.

4. Review our Book of the Month teacher and family discussion guides and peruse Books Matter to find excellent children’s books with anti-bias and bullying prevention themes.

5. Reflect on your anti-bias education practices with our educator resources including “Challenging Biased Language,” “The Civil Rights Movement,” “Discussing Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Identity and Issues,” “Helping Students Make Sense of News Stories about Bias and Injustice” and more.

6. Plan a lesson or in-depth curriculum unit on immigration, anti-Semitism, cyberbullying, LGBT history and other topics using our Lesson Plans.

7. Share anti-bias and bullying prevention information with Parents, Family Member and Caregivers.

8. Communicate with other educators by connecting with us on FacebookTumblr and Pinterest.

9. Talk with a young person in your life about how to respond to bullying and build their ally skills.

10. Join other educators and attend our summer trainings throughout the country in Echoes and Reflections, the leading Holocaust education program.

11. Learn about all of ADL’s education programs and workshops including Anti-Bias Education, Bullying/Cyberbullying, Campus Affairs, Confronting Anti-Semitism, Holocaust Education and No Place for Hate.
