As the diversity of our student populations continue to increase, we must work harder to include all learners by raising our own awareness of microaggressions, preventing them whenever we can, and stopping them when they occur. In addition, we can practice and encourage our students to practice microresistance. Microresistance techniques allow us to address microaggressions, whether right as they occur or after they occur. In this workshop, we will discuss a variety of microresistance techniques and then practice them in a low-stakes environment, so that we are more prepared when they occur in our own classrooms.
