Brave Spaces: Navigating Uncomfortable Conversations in the Classroom.

A culturally responsive classroom needs to be a brave space. A brave space is an environment that affirms its occupants while also pushing them out of their comfort zones to examine personal biases and cultural misconceptions. With this comes uncomfortable conversations. Topics of race, culture, and sexuality/gender make many teachers nervous. In this one-hour session participants will examine real-life scenarios and determine how to respond to each in a way that affirms and honors the cultures and backgrounds of the students in the classroom. Participants will leave feeling better equipped to create a brave space in their classrooms and better prepared to react to charged conversations or conflicts that may arise from difficult conversations.
