Classroom practices & Accessibility

Kristin's picture

Here's an initial list of classroom practices that you suggested in our first class meeting: 

Mixing small group and large group activities 

Providing discussion questions before class

Providing clear structure when possible 

Making the physical space of the classroom as accessible and welcoming as possible

Creating open dialogue and willingness to address hurtful comments

Creating a safe space for discussion 

Assuming fallibility, seeking growth and change

Asking for clarification of vocabulary and concepts

Taking care of yourself 

Offering time to reflect

Gallery walk as a classroom activity

Suggestions to guide reading (e.g. what to read in depth, what can be skimmed)

Circling back to topics discussed earlier

Visual, auditory, and tactile modes of learning, mixed media

Multiple modes of participation 

Willingness to offer questions or ideas that are not yet fully formulated
