R-E-S-P-E-C-T: Find out what it means to you

In the middle of a lesson, one of your students raises her hand and asks, “Isn’t there only one God?” Another student says, “That’s stupid! There is no god.”

How can your response help both of these students feel safe, supported and respected? How do you encourage them to be respectfully curious about each other’s ideas? 

By creating a classroom culture in which religious diversity is accepted. 

That may sound complicated, but Tanenbaum and Teaching Tolerance show you how in the second part of our FREE Religious Diversity in the Classroom webinar series:Fostering a Culture of Respect.

Participants in the webinar will learn:

  • strategies for creating classroom environments that reflect religious diversity;
  • tips for responding to religious intolerance in the classroom; and
  • approaches for supporting students’ religious and non-religious identities.
This beginner-level webinar is designed for educators of all grades and subjects.
Register early to reserve your space! You have two options: Wednesday, Aug. 20 from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. EST or Thursday, Aug. 21 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. EST.
