DESCRIPTION

How do our own attitudes get in the way of anti-bias in the classroom? In this practical resource, Tamar Jacobson provides a framework for early childhood teachers and education professors to confront this issue head on.

And she knows whereof she speaks. Growing up Jewish in the former colony of Rhodesia, Jacobson is in a unique position to challenge us with her disquiet, move us with her perspective, and change our ideas. What's more, she guides us along the tricky path towards an anti-bias curriculum-showing us how to see our own shortcomings, stop the perpetuation of negatives, and clear the way for children to gain a greater understanding of the world and its possibilities.
