Anti-Bias Picture Books: Home

Anti-bias education had its start in the 1980s when Louise Derman-Sparks and the A.B.C.Task Force developed a curriculum that would help children learn about diversity, and in so doing they developed four anti-bias goals. (Created for Prof. Harper.)

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

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

Anti-Bias Goal 3: Each child will increasingly recognize unfairness, have language to describe unfairness, and understand that unfairness hurts.

Anti-Bias Goal 4: Each child will demonstrate empowerment and the skills to act, with others or alone, against prejudice and/or discriminatory actions.
