Hi. My students are embarking on designing and hosting an end-of-semester event. The problem is, I have some students that are very outspoken and others who don’t speak up at all. I want to increase the chances of everyone having a voice in this event planning process so before we got to planning, we had a discussion about WHY inclusion is important and HOW to nurture it. The students (undergrads in this case) were pretty clear on WHY it’s important but were much more abstract when talking about the HOW.
Anyways, this got me to wondering about WHY and HOW you all encourage inclusiveness in your classroom. Please share your insights here.
