How to Have Critical Conversations with Students
As educators it is critical that we engage students in thinking and talking about current issues, events and systemic oppressions. We might feel unprepared or uncomfortable leading these discussions with students, however not engaging in these critical conversations can cause erasure or harm. As culturally responsive educators, it is crucial we support students to develop their critical consciousness - that we support them to learn “How” to think, not “What” to think. This learning workshop supports moving from Theory to Practice and walks you through how to plan and facilitate critical conversations with students.
