How do you talk to kids about racism?

How do you talk to kids about racism? | DHSchildstudies | Scoop.it

By four years, children have already begun to internalise bias and stereotypes. Yet research shows teachers and parents are often uncomfortable or unsure about talking to children about cultural difference.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, November 22, 4:59 PM
I did not teach about racism in a direct way. I used projects that explored racism and how we strive to overcome various -isms. For example, I had students select a person they considered a hero to their community. Quite often, this led to students choosing Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson, Willie O'Ree (he broke the colour barrier in hockey), etc. It was terrific to see how students discovered what the sacrifices made to live in an inclusive world.

Why kids get hit by cars

Why kids get hit by cars | DHSchildstudies | Scoop.it
Getting hit by a car is the third leading cause of death for kids 5- to 9-years-old, and kids up to age 15 make up a disproportionate number of pedestrian casualties worldwide. It’s not hard to think of reasons for this scary statistic: Children are easily distracted and don’t always pay attention, and they are also smaller, so they’re more likely to sustain fatal injuries when they are hit. But there may be another, even more basic, reason for this childhood peril: Kids simply don’t see the cars coming.
