Identity Matters: Understanding Identity and Narrative Through an Anti-Bias Education Lens

How do we consider the identities, lived experiences, and narratives of our students when we plan our lessons? And how do we as educators show up in our classrooms with our students in our own complex identities? This talk will use an anti-bias education lens to examine the role and impact of student and teacher identity in creating positive narratives in the classroom for all students.
