Event description

Description

This interactive workshop will help teachers explore strategies for facilitating critical conversations with students and colleagues. Participants will engage in personal reflection and examine some common beliefs and biases that can affect their ability to engage in productive conversations. They will learn strategies for creating supportive learning environments that encourage risk-taking during critical conversations. Finally, they’ll investigate methods of teaching about implicit bias, race and other critical topics.

Participants will learn to:
• Identify strategies and resources to create a positive and respectful learning environment where critical conversations can take place.
• Reflect on personal assumptions and learned biases and recognize their impact on classroom practice.
• Develop skills and confidence for engaging in and facilitating conversations about race and other critical topics.
