Dr. Cynthia Ganote will lead an interactive workshop on microresistance techniques that can be readily adopted as ways to combat microaggressions in the classroom. The workshop takes place Tuesday, March 13 from 9:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M. in 231 Weitz CEC.
Participants will be encouraged to engage with concepts and strategies through dialogue and active learning techniques.
Microaggressions (instances of indirect, subtle, or unintentional discrimination) occur all around us, including our classroom environments. As teachers, strategies for addressing these and other bias incidents are critical tools for creating civil, safe, and inclusive classrooms.
