Reviewed by Heather Osborne for Readers' Favorite Educator’s Equity Companion Guide, part of the Harmony Education Series, is a concise, workbook style book on how to work with every day discriminatory issues. The book can be used by social workers, teachers, and even students in order to learn about why people have different beliefs. The guide explores such topics as gender, as well as race-based, gender-based, and religious discrimination. Each chapter offers a scenario and asks some critical thinking questions pertinent to the scenario. Then, the guide discusses history relating to each topic and definitions about key terms. There is also an explanation of what could have been done differently and what people can do to amend their beliefs. I found the Educator’s Equity Companion Guide to be very concise. I liked how the chapters followed a very similar format and how the information was laid out in a basic manner. Although this applies mainly to Canada, I could see how the guide might be adapted to other countries with a few simple tweaks. I believe every educator should go through some sort of training with this guide in mind. Even when we think we are being tolerant and accepting, there might be something we have done to unintentionally offend a person, due to our own learned biases. I particularly enjoyed the last section on how to work at developing inclusive education. I would only suggest adding an introduction at the beginning to explain the purpose of the guide and it would be complete. The Harmony Group has done an exemplary job of providing educators with some excellent talking points.
