Yikes! Suppose I say Something Wrong?

Among the 5,000-plus decisions teachers are said to make each day, hundreds involve mediating classroom conflicts. From childhood teasing to adolescent gossip, teachers and administrators are called on intervene in misunderstandings all the time. Yet what happens when students raise the stakes in their tug-of-words? How do you respond when your students use racial epithets, ethnic slurs, or derogatory remarks about sexual orientation, size, weight, class or ability or other constitutive dimension of difference? This interactive workshop will introduce a framework for understanding a range of responses to destructive bias and prejudicial remarks in classrooms and other school settings.

Presented by the AIMS Diversity Committee, the keynote presenter is Caroline Blackwell, Vice President for Equity and Justice at the National Association of Independent Schools. Learn more here.
