  • 1.  Syllabus/Reading list examples: Learning about racism/prejudice in early childhood?

    Hello,
    I am in the process of designing a special topics course this coming spring related to children's development of racial/social biases. The course may broaden to include content about family/parenting/caregiver roles in anti-prejudice practices. I haven't taught in a while and I've never developed my own course. I am looking for examples of similarly themed courses, reading lists, or syllabi. I've already started building off of some of the publications/popular press articles and multimedia resources posted to the Building an Antiracist Society. Also looking for guidance on effective strategies for building space that will foster productive class discussions for a "hot topic" course.    

    Many thanks
