INFORMATION
Training Overview

Incorporate more voices to make a richer curriculum. Teach students through an inclusive lens.

As you prepare for the end of this year and the beginning of the 2022-23 school year, many schools are expanding next year’s curriculum. Students, parents, and teachers have grown tired of focusing on the same old voices rooted in historically biased choices.

Ever wonder what life was like for children on the frontier? Or how about what Mrs. Washington, Lincoln, or Jefferson did as first ladies before Vogue shoots and activism became the norm? Your students would love to find out too!

You can examine implicit bias and its effect on classroom and campus spaces to find two immediate changes you can easily implement. Then, you will be able to explore “Who else was there?” to gain a new perspective on how to help students explore all subjects through an inclusive lens.
