Identifying Microaggressions in the Classroom – Microaggressions occur daily within the classroom and negatively impact students, students, families, and colleagues. Adults and students alike use microaggressions with peers and colleagues unintentionally. These microaggressions may be based on socioeconomic status, disability, gender, gender expression or identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, nationality, or religion. This is a true challenge in today’s educational environments. Participants in this course will learn to identify microaggressions, become cognizant of the potential impact and address students, families, and colleagues in a non-biased manner while building community and responding to the microaggressions.
