Building an Equitable Holiday Approach Workshop-Group


The Building an Equitable Holiday Approach Workshop helps the participants understand the importance of including holidays that reflect both their communities and the world, begin to view their current approach with an anti-bias lens, implement best practices for celebrating a variety of holidays, and provides the means to craft a new holiday policy. In addition to making the school and classroom more inclusive, taking the course helps teachers and staff use holidays to expose children to other cultures’ celebrations, making the festivities a natural teachable moment.

The Group License is for taking the course with an entire staff, as might happen on an in-service day.  Purchase only ONE site license for up to 30 Certificates of Completion.



The Building an Equitable Holiday Approach Workshop is designed to help administrators, teachers, and guides to create a plan for observing holidays in their classroom and/or school that both represents their community and appreciates the world’s many cultures. After completing the course, participants will be able to survey their community, develop a holiday observation plan, and help their students broaden their view of holiday celebrations.

Each lesson in the workshop consists of a topic and a hands-on assignment in the accompanying user manual. When working together as a group, the exercises make excellent conversation prompts to help you with your planning process.
