Your students are affected by social, political, and other topics both in and outside of school, and often bring up difficult issues in class. The diversity of ideas, perspectives and experiences of students can present unique opportunities and challenges for respectful dialogue within the classroom. Sometimes these conversations can become high-stakes - where the combination of divergent opinions and high-running emotions create challenges for maintaining a safe and positive learning environment. As an educator, it's both necessary and important to guide your students through challenging discussions. Although they can be difficult at times, productive conversations about these topics can help students come to a deeper understanding of and respect for those with perspectives different from their own. Participants will be offered strategies and protocols that will help to cultivate an atmosphere of mutual respect and support so that every every student feels comfortable when engaging in these conversations. This workshop builds on the practices discussed in Part 1 of this 2 part series, and participants are advised to attend both workshops in order to derive the full benefit of both. Credit will be granted based on attendance at each workshop. Meeting location TBD
