Anti- bias Approach to Education

Antibias Education Goals and Outcomes
(Derman-Sparks, 2010, Teaching Tolerance)


  • Goal 1: Each child will demonstrate self-awareness, confidence, family pride, and positive social identities.

    • I know and like who I am and can talk about my family and myself and name some of my group identities.

    • I can talk about interesting and healthy ways that some people who share my group identities live their lives.

    • I know that all my group identities are part of me—but that I am always ALL me.

    • I can feel good about myself without being mean or making other people feel bad.

    • I see that the way my family and I do things is both the same as and different from how other people do things, and I am interested in both.


  • Goal 2: Each child will express comfort and joy with human diversity; accurate language for human differences; and deep, caring human connections.

    • I like being around people who are like me and different from me, and I can be friendly to everyone.

    • I can describe some ways that I am similar to and different from people who share my identities and those who have other identities.

    • I want to know about other people and how our lives and experiences are the same and different.

    • I know everyone has feelings, and I want to get along with people who are similar to and different from me.

    • I find it interesting that groups of people believe different things and live their daily lives in different ways.
