In this updated edition, two distinguished early childhood educators tackle the crucial topic of what White children need and gain from anti-bias and multicultural education. This compelling text includes teaching strategies for early childhood settings, activities for families and staff, reflection questions, a record of 20th and 21st century White anti-racism activists, and organizational and website resources.

Bringing this guide completely up-to-date, the authors

  • Address the current state of racism and anti-racism in the United States, including the election of the first African American president and the rise in hate groups
  • Review child development research with a particular emphasis on recent observational studies that show how White children enact racial power codes
  • Discuss implementation of the core learning themes in racially diverse early childhood education settings, state standards for preschools and pre-K classrooms, and NCLB pressures on early childhood teaching
  • Update all resources and appendices, including further reading lists and websites for finding resources and organizations engaged in anti-racism work
