PERFORMANCE How will you stop stereotyping inside your home and community? Write your answers in 3- 5 sentences.
Honesty and openness are the keystones of change. A good place to start is reflecting on your own inherent biases and owning up to and correcting your mistakes. When you lead by example, you can create a safe space that allows for difficult conversations and encourages students to address their own faulty thinking.
Look for opportunities to raise awareness about stereotypes during lessons, whether they come from resources or from the students themselves. Be clear but respectful, and keep in mind that even if you don’t have time for a deep dive into the bias in the moment, acknowledging it briefly will still help to shift perspectives.
