For educators who are new to or already engaged in antibias and antiracist (ABAR) work, there may be a myriad of worries coming from different directions. The insecurities that can hold educators back stem from the same place—the unpredictability of classroom conversations, the fear of making mistakes or not knowing enough, and lack of control over how students, caregivers, and administrators might react.

Designed to introduce both novice and experienced educators to antibias and antiracist work, this webinar series will take you through different elements of building an ABAR practice. Beginning with identity and Kimberlé Crenshaw's work around intersectionality, we will also identify ways to apply an ABAR lens to ELA, math, and STEM, as well as art and physical education.

This series is grounded in practical examples from elementary and middle grade classes, including student work and specially designed units of study.

Learning Objectives


  • Understanding and defining antibias and antiracist (ABAR) language
  • Unpacking personal identity
  • Learning to adopt an ABAR lens


  • Cultivating community in your classroom
  • Facilitating conversations around identity and diversity with learners
  • Inviting caregivers to understand social justice work in the classroom


  • Identifying multiple access points for ABAR work in school
  • Developing and applying an ABAR lens to multiple subjects
  • Navigating conversations with school leaders
