Understanding Unconscious Bias and Unintentional Racism
Moule, Jean
Phi Delta Kappan, v90 n5 p320-326 Jan 2009
Unconscious biases affect one's relationships, whether they are fleeting relationships in airports or longer term relationships between teachers and students, teachers and parents, teachers and other educators. In this article, the author argues that understanding one's possible biases is essential for developing community in schools. Acknowledging biases often opens doors for learning and allows people to consciously work for harmony in classrooms and communities. (Contains 1 table.)
