Field trips help teachers face implicit bias
from District Administration Magazine
It's one thing to hear students talk about their neighborhoods; it's another to contend with implicit bias by viewing firsthand the diversity of their communities. During the summer, new teachers at Tennessee's Hamilton County Schools (45,000 students) took neighborhood bus tours with their mentors as part of their summer orientation program designed to foster cultural diversity in the classroom. Veteran educators also joined the eye-opening rides, which were provided free by the Chattanooga district's transportation provider, says Erin Kirby, a new teacher induction specialist.
