Ancona teachers strive to design curricula that support an anti-bias approach and prepare students to challenge paradigms that confer greater power, worth and/or opportunity upon certain individuals due to their inherent characteristics. Activities should be designed to promote respect, understanding and responsibility for one’s own actions. Underlying these curriculum strands are the following fundamental principles:
  1. No matter how different we are, we are all equally worthy of respect, dignity, and opportunity.
  2. All people have a right to express and feel comfortable with whom they believe themselves to be insofar as such expression is not injurious to another person or group of persons.
As a result of these curriculum strands, we expect that children will:
  • respond to differences in race, culture, ethnicity and origin respectfully.
  • develop an awareness of and empathy for the differences in people’s feelings, opinions and responses and treat each other respectfully in spite of these differences.
  • have the necessary tools to critically assess societal norms, particularly in moments of personal discomfort.
  • understand the concept of stereotyping and think critically about its application and ramifications in various situations.
  • understand that people are responsible for their own actions and have the power to make decisions and make change happen.
