Classrooms are dynamic spaces where teachers and students with a range of identities and experiences come together to learn in community. Students will utilize a variety of pedagogical strategies to assist in the development of meaningful relationships in the classroom by reflecting on their own experiences/identities and learning about their students and their families. Students explore a range of research-based approaches to provide culturally relevant and inclusive instruction.
