Inclusive Excellence Symposium - Not My Place to Speak: Encouraging Risk in Classroom Discussions
From USU Media Production
Dr. Christopher González, Associate Professor, Department of English; Director of Latinx Cultural Center, USU How do you talk about controversial or difficult topics in your classroom? How do you handle topics that concern marginalization on the basis of race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, religion, and disability in a classroom that may not identify with such marginalized groups? This workshop will identify obstacles and propose strategies for creating a classroom environment conducive to grappling with challenging material.
