Creating a Psychologically Safe Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Ever wonder what strategies can be used to create a classroom where acceptance of others' differences is the new norm? In this session, we will share strategies we have tried through our TRC research in our classrooms that helped reduce some mathematical fears students enter our classrooms with. Through creating team norms, a strong focus on teamwork and growth mindset, and finding ways to give positive student-to-student feedback, our classrooms have been transformed!
