TA Workshop: Teaching Hot Topics
his workshop builds on concepts and strategies from Creating Inclusive Classrooms and Interrupting Bias in the Classroom to help instructors learn how to address hot topics in their classrooms when they arise. Participants will engage in and practice key concepts related to how to use dialogue in the classroom and how to challenge dominant narratives within texts. Instructors will also practice troubleshooting moments in the classroom when challenging content is being addressed.
Note: We highly encourage you to take Creating Inclusive Classrooms and Interrupting Bias before participating in this workshop. Additionally, the content and discussion in this workshop will be necessarily engaging with topics related to sexual assault and racially oppressive language. The workshop facilitator will do their best to make this workshop a space where we can engage bravely, empathetically, and thoughtfully with the difficult content.
