Equitable and inclusive teaching

Classrooms often serve as incubators for educators seeking to effect the broader change envisioned by Principled Innovation and are therefore important sites for developing a deep understanding of fairness. This concise resource by Harvard’s Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning provides a well-rounded overview of fostering equitable and inclusive university classrooms. Easily adapted to K-12 planning, this resource contains subsections which could provide an engaging jigsaw activity for pre-service teachers, with small groups focusing on each of the article’s four subsections.
