This research-based course for educators explores issues of implicit bias based upon race, ethnicity and LGBTQ status through an analysis of "microaggressions" and "micro-insults." Implicit bias theory is fundamental to improving student achievement to close the opportunity gap and dismantle the school to prison pipeline.

Course Objectives: 

  • Explore issues of implicit bias and microaggressions
  • Develop an understanding of (1) how our beliefs, values, and experiences inform one's implicit biases and (2) how our implicit biases and behaviors impact others (students, colleagues, families, etc.) including the LGBTQ community
  • Learn about additional implicit bias resources for educators, explore the gender binary, and discuss strategies on how to provide students from the LGBTQ community a safe environment to learn and improve student achievement.

Registration is $10 and 3 clock hours are available.

This course is open only to WEA members in Summit UniServ Council. Questions? Contact Ashley Lindsay or call 253-845-4535.
