Fostering a More United America in Your PreK-12 Classroom
Our classrooms reflect our communities and always need to be safe spaces for learning. How do you maintain that safe space for learning while respecting all of the opinions, backgrounds and perspectives students bring to the classroom?
Join the Albert Shanker Institute and Share My Lesson for an informative webinar with diverse educator voices offering ideas for creating and maintaining an identity-affirming learning environment. We'll discuss the importance of creating an intentional community and how to do it, including setting rules and responsibilities. We'll also address how having community can help address tough topics with students and their families. Finally, we'll cover how and why we must remember to humanize our students and ourselves--both what is practical and aspirational--and how we can be together despite disagreements.
This session is part of the series: A More United America: Teaching Democratic Principles and Protected Freedoms.
