Diversity and Inclusion – a culturally inclusive and engaged classroom (On Demand)
Learners come to life when they connect with the people they’re near and engage with material that strikes a chord with their soul. A culturally engaged classroom is where teachers can make personal connections with their students by providing them with material that is relevant and real. When learners are at the centre of discussion and thinking, creativity flows.
This workshop will provide an overarching outline of the key qualities of inclusive leaders and how pivotal diversity and inclusion has become over the years in developing strategic goals of a school as well as building competent and confident staff who can connect with students and families from all walks of life.
The teacher who knows their learner and provides a wide variety of stimulating activities to connect the learner with real life matter creates a classroom that is engaged and inclusive.
