Spotting Stereotypes in Storybooks is a free 1.5 hour workshop that teaches parents how to recognize racist, stereotypical or negative representations – traditionally of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities – in children’s books.
Xenolearn and Delft MaMa are excited to partner together to bring you this workshop for the parenting community of Delft. We invite parents to participate in an interactive lesson, filled with reflection exercises, group discussions, and practice. Parents will practice identifying problematic stereotypes in children’s books, how to talk about both negative and positive representations, and how to balance diverse stories and affirming stories. Parents will finish the workshop feeling confident and equipped with the right tools to share positive and affirming representations of BIPOC communities during story time.
Spotting Stereotypes in Storybooks: May 19th, 2021, at 20:00 CET.
This workshop will be offered over Zoom. A confirmation email will be sent to you after you 24 hrs after you sign up.
