Introductory Level; Provides preparation for Mentored Teaching Experience and foundation in effective teaching strategies. Registration required.
Students come to our classrooms from widely varying educational, economic, and cultural backgrounds. These unique characteristics shape student identities and are fundamental to creating a rich educational environment. But how do we ensure that all students in our classrooms are heard, valued, included, and respected during class? Participants in this workshop will learn about the different identities and backgrounds that comprise our classrooms and discuss effective strategies for reaching all students during the classroom experience.
This workshop will take place via Zoom. Registered participants will receive a link to the Zoom meeting as part of the reminder email.
