Strengthening School Climate through Inclusion: An Approach to Teacher Professional Development
Loyola University Chicago is currently partnering with a few Democracy Schools across the Chicago metropolitan area, as they seek to develop and implement strategies to strengthen school climate through inclusion. Inclusive school climates can be strengthened through a variety of approaches including teaching and learning, elevating and supporting student voice particularly among marginalized student populations, and examining social identity formation and bias among adults. This workshop will provide both insights into the process of engaging questions of race, culture and diversity that tend to be fraught with tension, misunderstanding and lack of clarity as well as what approaches schools are taking to engage all students more meaningfully through an assortment of strategies that do not, once and for all, solve the problem of lack of inclusion, but at a minimum, position schools to undertake this important work with commitment and fidelity.
