Building trust and community in your classroom(s)
This collection includes videos, articles and activities to help teachers create a classroom culture wherein students feel comfortable asking questions, collaborating and taking academic risks. Resources are for all grade levels. Some can be used directly with students while others are for teachers to read and consider, and possibly adapt for classroom use.
Among the resources you'll find:
- videos about empathy and kindness
- tips on discussing sensitive topics like race and identity
- a tool to help examine units for cultural relevance
- a classroom activity to explore the gender stereotypes baked into the marketing of "boy" toys and "girl" toys.
