Development of social identities in diverse societies including theoretical and practical implications of privilege or oppression as they apply to young children, families, programs, classrooms and teaching.  Classroom strategies emphasizing cultural and linguistically appropriate anti-bias and anti-racist approaches are explored in order to support children as they grow to become competent members of a diverse society.  Opportunities for self-examination and reflection on issues related to social identity, stereotypes, bias, social and educational access, media influences, and schooling are included.
