In this updated edition, two distinguished early childhood educators tackle the crucial topic of what White children need and gain from anti-bias and multicultural education. The authors propose seven learning themes to help young White children resist messages of racism and build identity and skills for thriving in a country and world filled with diverse ways of being. This compelling text includes teaching strategies for early childhood settings, activities for families and staff, reflection questions, a record of 20th- and 21st-century White anti-racism activists, and organizational and website resources.
Bringing this bestselling guide completely up to date, the authors:
Address the current state of racism and anti-racism in the United States, including the election of the first African American president and the rise of hate groups.
Review child development research with a particular emphasis on recent observational studies that show how White children enact racial power codes.
Discuss implementation of the core learning themes in racially diverse early childhood education settings, state standards for preschools and pre-K classrooms, and NCLB pressures on early childhood teaching.
Update all resources and appendices, including reading lists and websites for finding resources and organizations engaged in anti-racism work.
