Of the many challenges educators face, guiding students on overcoming biases ranks high on the list. Listen as Kathy Carroll, 2020-2021 AASL President, moderates a roundtable discussion on the subject in a one-hour webinar presented by AASL and sponsored by Gale, a Cengage company.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how to educate administrators, school leaders, and students about privileges, biases, and inequities in schools.
  • Learn ways to facilitate productive conversations and improve intergroup relations.
