Upcoming Anti-Bias Education Workshop from Katie Kissinger


Dear Portland Area Rethinking Schools friends,

Please consider registering for this workshop, led by Rethinking Schools friend and author, Katie Kissinger:

Now More Than Ever Recommitting to Anti-Bias Education

This workshop will validate previous efforts to implement anti-bias education in early childhood classrooms along with inspiring new consideration for the importance of this work. Participants will share stories, learn the most current understandings of social identities, and gain tools and strategies for responding to the needs and inclusion of all children and families. Supporting young children in their positive identity development and in learning about differences is more critical in our society than it has ever been. Join us for an in-depth exploration of this important topic for Elementary and Early Childhood teachers.

Join Katie Kissinger, Educator, ECE Consultant and College Instructor and OCCD Master Trainer for this workshop.

Date and Time June 24th 9:30-11:30 am
Cost $25 (cash or check only)
Location Wild Lilac CDC 3829 SE 74th Ave. Portland, Oregon

Katie is the author of the newly released “Anti-bias Education in the Early Childhood Classroom: Hand in Hand, Step by Step” published by Routledge Press in March of 2017. The workshop will be followed by a book reading and signing from 11:30-12:00. All workshop participants will receive a $5 off coupon to purchase Katie’s new book at the event!
