This academy is for all circle makers who are educators interested in making wider and wider circles to include more and more students in all academic and social opportunities.
Participants will receive 100s of practical strategies on how to create inclusive lessons and inclusive schools. Our aim is to shift mindsets, heartsets, and skillsets. Our focus is on all student identities from ability, to race, to gender, culture, and language. You will leave with stronger skills in redesigning lessons, differentiating to create more access points, fostering independence and interdependence, supporting students through transitions, working with other team members, and leveraging the power of paraprofessionals, peers, and related service providers.
