Transformation and Change Radio with Dr. Kathy Obear: Choose Courage ~ Speak Your Truth ~ Live On Purpose: Preparing Students to Navigate Difficult Situations in the Classroom, a Conversation with Dr. Abby Ferber!
09/09/2019 10:00 am PST
Discussing controversial, difficult topics in the classroom can lead to powerful insights and skill development; yet, too often, these conversations dissolve into unproductive debates and shouting matches, undermining learning and damaging the classroom environment.
Alone, faculty and teachers may not be able to navigate these difficult moments. Yet, if we teach students the skills and capacities to notice their hot buttons, avoid knee-jerk reactions, de-escalate triggered emotions, and intentionally choose how to respond, together, we can turn triggering events into productive learning moments.
Come join me and Dr. Abby Ferber as we explore practical strategies and tips to proactively prepare students to more effectively engage each other during challenging, difficult conversations in the classroom.
