“I just treat everyone the same”: Moving From Equality to Equity in Teaching
As educators, we have a professional obligation to treat our students fairly, so it is natural to think that this means treating everyone the same. This workshop will explore the multiple ways that the assumptions we make as teachers can privilege certain groups while disadvantaging others. We will see that when we fail to critically examine these assumptions, treating everyone the same will not lead to an equitable learning environment. We will also learn about what we can and cannot do for students with disabilities and the resources the DRC provides.
