We humans make assumptions about individuals based on what we see. And those assumptions become labels. And those labels become expectations. And those expectations can become students’ realities. But, this cycle can be interrupted. Disrupting one’s thinking about another person takes a concerted effort to understand who that person really is and the strengths that person has. Let’s explore the ways that labels can be removed so that expectations for success become reality.

Participants will
• Identify the ways in which labeling harms students
• Describe actions that can be taken in the classroom to address labeling
• Develop a plan to address stereotyping and bias at the classroom and school level
