Part 1: Understanding Ourselves First
We all have biases that can impact children. Select and complete one of the 14 subtests from the following resource:
Teaching Tolerance. (2015). Test yourself for hidden bias. Retrieved from http://www.tolerance.org/supplement/test-yourself-hidden-bias

After reviewing your results, explain the following:
What you learned from the bias tests (You are not required to include your results. This self-analysis is for your use only.)
Whether you believe biases are easily manipulated
How the power of language can affect self-expression, identity development, and learning
How you can use what you learned about yourself in working with children

Include in your analysis why it is important to know some of the history of inclusion of the group representing the topic you selected. How does knowing some of the history impact decisions you might make in your classroom?

Include an explanation of how you will connect students’ experiences to future instruction. Use at least two resources for your paper.
