Learn to effectively create and maintain BRAVE SPACES in your classroom to foster mutual understanding and respect for one another as well as the ability to address current issues that we face as a society.


As educators, we play a crucial role in society – we are daily facilitators of conversations that address and impact societal norms. We share precious opportunities to promote social justice through facilitating courageous conversations, regardless of the grade level or content area we teach. This course discusses principles, guidelines, expectations, and practices that can be embedded and implemented in our core instruction and in our daily interactions with our students to navigate the nuances of our own and our students’ complex identities, as well as societal challenges including oppression, privilege, bias and agency.
