Webinar Focus: How do you create classrooms in which students develop their voice and sense of agency?
Creating upstanders starts with giving students the space and opportunity to reflect on their own thinking, to develop a sense of their self, and to start to practice engaging with others. How can teachers do that from day one in their classroom?
In partnership with CLTV, Educator Innovator shared this month’s webinars as part of an August 2015 series titled “Creating Student Upstanders in Today’s World,” which is organized by Facing History and Ourselves.
