Constructing the Innocent Classroom: Dismantling Racial Bias for Our Students

Constructing the Innocent Classroom is a child-specific response to diverse classrooms that is teacher-driven and child-centered. In this foundational workshop series, Julian Condie will introduce participants to a relationship-building process that prepares educators to identify and positively engage each child's essential motivation—their good. This methodology undermines the negative impact that stereotype threat and implicit bias have on teacher–child relationships in the classroom. Thus, authentic relationships between child and teacher based on each child's good become the foundation for increased classroom engagement and academic performance and decreased disciplinary incidents, as well as improved job satisfaction for educators.
