Diversity in Schools
With Educator and Facilitator, Anne Burger
So often it is assumed that since the dawn of our democracy, teachers should simply be able to fit in with what is now a changed landscape within their classrooms. While race and ethnicity are always at the forefront of any conversation regarding diversity there are so many more factors to take into consideration.
This webinar focuses on equipping the teacher to not only embrace the diversity within a classroom but encourage dialogue and communication in this regard.
We will be discussing-
- Diversity in its entirety including – race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, language, socio-economic status and family structure
- How do the individuals values ; beliefs; attitudes and behaviour impact and gel with those of the school
- Why diversity is important to a happy and successful classroom environment
- Examples of cultural differences – learning to understand and embrace them
- Managing diversity in the classroom
- Some critical factors with regards to diversity in the classroom
