Summary of September 26, 2020 Twitter chat around the question “How do we maintain inclusive spaces that value and depict diversity through student voices, cultural voices and experiences?”
Blogging has created amazing opportunities for me to share my voice using an asynchronous tool to be transparent about what I am exploring and discovering in regards to learning and how technology can really enhance learning experiences for myself and my students.
As an educator I want my students and their families to be a part of our daily learning. When this is encouraged, parents feel welcomed to engage. Through our ability to model this and offer invitations to extend learning outside of our classrooms parents begin to work alongside us, the teachers who are working hard each day to make a difference for all of our students.
I wasnâ€™t sure, when I first heard about the Common Core standards, if the CCSS approach would support my inquiry-driven, communication-heavy, student-voice kind of classroom culture. But the more Iâ€™ve delved into it, the more Iâ€™ve seen that the practices and overarching standards align quite well.
