I really enjoyed the Teach to Empower excerpt. It serves as a good reminder of the ways in which education has and will continue to change over time. Some key takeaways from the read that I will work to apply in order to empower students are;
- Continue to educate myself on the historical backgrounds of the diverse cultures/student groups that I work with.
- Explicitly teach skills related to building personal/social awareness, empathy, and social responsibility.
- Build safe spaces and personal relationships with students to that they feel comfortable to share openly, take risks, and engage in tough discussions.
