It is a pleasure to be in community with educators in the Diversity and Equity work with Adults Interest forum.
A group of us have planned a video discussion group based on the video "Reflecting on Anti Bias Education in Action" video [https://www.antibiasleadersece.com/the-film-reflecting-on-anti-bias-education-in-action/]. We plan to meet 4 times, watching a quarter of the video each time and then discussing it.
In the Zoom meetings we will begin as a whole group, watch a portion of the film, and then meet in small groups; the same small group of people in each of the 4 meetings, but allowing for newcomers to join in if they miss a meeting.
We will use the Viewer Guide's prompts/questions to support our reflection-some will be sent in email to participants ahead of time.
You are welcome even if you have already viewed the video, or if you are only able to join in some of the meetings.
Thursday Evenings 5-6:30 PST, 6-7:30 MST, 7-8:30 CST, 8-9:30 EST

Use this link to sign up and tell us a little more about yourself. The information will help us plan the meetings and set up effective small groups.A few days before the first meeting, we will email a zoom link to everyone who signs up.
We want to remind ourselves that conversations about anti-bias education take time, over time. Anti-bias work is self-work. Discomfort is expected and welcome for growth.
The teachers in the film are experienced and have the support of their administrators. Some of the hard parts of the teaching have not been included in the video.
Look for further emails to describe your interests for discussion. We'll do our best to group people according to interests and perhaps age of students.Cut and paste this link if the sign up link above doesn't work for you https://forms.gle/pjxNbQkedeubE8mG8
