Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Audience: Administrators

Dates: 10/26/2021

Location: Online

Starting Soon
Every child should know what it is like to feel innocent - to believe that this world is open to them. Our society's stereotypes stand in the way. We partner with administrators, principals, and classroom teachers to help them build relationships that liberate children of color from the power of racial stereotypes in their schools and classrooms.

Session 2 of 4 ... This half-day session is offered to LICEE district curriculum and instruction and building level administrators. It is suggested you register for all 4 sessions

Session 2: Recognizing Good and Innocence This session introduces the process of discovering the good of a child and provides a new framework to understand behavior. Educators are challenged to develop strategies and use tools like "The Good Questions” to learn enough about the three children they selected to make an initial determination of each child's good. This directly undermines racial bias by replacing stereotypes about a child with actual and authentic knowledge about who that child is. Intended outcomes for educators following this session:

• Understand the connection between a child's behavior, guilt, good, and innocence.

• Employ new tools (e.g. The Good Questions) to learn information about the internal life of the three students they selected.

• Anticipate that knowing a child's good will create an essential empathy that demands action on behalf of the child.
Presented by - Alexs Pate and the Innocent Classroom Team
