1.5 CPDs, Run Time 1:00:51
"When we speak of peace, we do not mean a partial truce between separate nations, but a permanent way of life for all [mankind]." —Maria Montessori
Either education contributes to a movement of universal liberation by showing the way to defend and raise humanity or it becomes like one of those organs which have shriveled up by not being used during the evolution of the organism. —Maria Montessori, The Formation of Man. In order to fully understand peace, we must first be willing to embrace social justice. In Part 2 of our Anti-Bias webinar, we will continue the exploration started in Part 1 about the process of understanding ourselves and our students through the lens of Anti-Bias, Anti-Racist education, an active approach to maintaining a culturally responsive and culturally sustaining environment for all learners. This webinar is appropriate both for those who participated in Part 1 and those who did not.
