How can you create a safe and reflective classroom where students learn to exchange ideas and listen respectfully to each other? What strategies are most effective in helping students practice constructive civil discourse?
In the midst of the disruption engendered by a global pandemic, protests against police brutality and systemic racism, the cost of living crisis, conflict in Ukraine, ongoing tensions around immigration, rising Islamophobia, antisemitism and far right extremism, we are all rightly concerned about the lessons that today’s students might be absorbing about respect, communication, problem solving, and their ability to make a difference.
Educators have an essential role to play in creating classrooms where students learn to listen respectfully to different opinions and experiences, try out ideas and positions, and give - and get - constructive feedback without fear or intimidation.
Connect with other teachers and explore strategies designed to help you navigate these challenging times and support your students to develop effective skills for participation in the classroom and the wider community. We will be using breakout rooms during the session.
This event is aimed at teachers in the UK.
Details for joining the Zoom meeting will be shared by email prior to the event.
