As an educator, you work to make sure your students are in a physically safe classroom environment, but what about socially and emotionally? It is extremely important for students to feel valued, that their social identity and cultures are accepted, and that they are welcomed members of the classroom. Our Creating Safe Classroom Environments course helps educators gain the knowledge for building positive, trustworthy, and challenging curriculum and environments that allow students to flourish. These practices help to empower students to take charge of their own learning and goals.
