In this webinar, Dr. Gretchen McAllister and Dr. Hoda Harati of Northern Arizona University facilitated our Building Inclusive Classrooms TeacherSim. The purpose of this webinar was to show the potential of simulations and how they can help you advance the growth of aspiring and/or novice teachers. The webinar allowed participants to take part in an engaging and collaborative development session with peers from around the country.
Simulations help teachers to become more confident in their decision-making abilities by creating a risk-free environment where participants have an opportunity to practice and fail as they face difficult situations. In this particular simulation, you must handle books that focus on LGBTQIA identity while addressing parent concerns and student needs while interacting with the school board and administration. Let's discuss which approach makes sense and why together.
