This week, we have a bonus episode from our 2020 Teachathon. This discussion was presented by Julie Butters (who you might remember from episode six) and Emma McCarthy and in it, they discuss a 2015 study that Emma was involved in regarding dealing with sensitive cultural issues in the classroom. They introduce the theory behind teachers' attitudes towards dealing with sensitive issues in the classroom and give some practical examples of incorporating social justice issues in the classroom to promote transformative learning.
You can also watch the video of this presentation on our YouTube channel, which includes a beautiful presentation that accompanies discussion.
Mel and I both this is an very interesting and important topic, so we hope you enjoy it! Check back next week when we will have a brand new episode of Talk to Us @Bounce English! You’re the best!
