To be completed before Tuesday, January 8, Zoom session.
Open pedagogy is an asset-based pedagogy, as are culturally sustaining pedagogy and trauma-informed pedagogy. Asset-based practices focus on strengths of our students and their communities, rather than deficits.
Bonus listen: For more information on trauma-informed pedagogy, Tea for Teaching has a terrific interview (39 mins) with Karen Costa, an educator who’s been working in this area for several years.
After reading the information at the links above, as well as the chapter from Equity-centered Trauma-informed Education (sent by email), Respond to these spark questions in the comments below.
