Removing Labels: Disrupting the Negative Effects of Labels and Assumptions
Date: Monday, April 19, 2021
Duration: 60 minutes
We make assumptions about individuals based on what we see. And those assumptions become labels. And those labels become expectations. And those expectations can become students’ realities. But this cycle can be interrupted. Disrupting one’s thinking about another person takes a concerted effort to understand who that person really is and the strengths that person has. In this webinar, authors Dominique Smith, Douglas Fisher, and Nancy Frey explore the ways that labels can be removed so that expectations for success become reality.
You'll learn how to:
- Identify the ways in which labeling harms students
- Describe actions that can be taken in the classroom to address labeling
- Develop a plan to address stereotyping and bias at the classroom and school level
