Unscripted Vol. 3: Community Connections
What comes to mind when students think of community? Some students may consider their community the people in their neighborhood. Others may consider community to be the individuals who share their same social identities. Still others might conceptualize community as individuals who share their same circumstance (e.g., immigration status) or religious practice (e.g., Christianity). Regardless of how they define it, it is clear that students bring their communities with them to school every day. Hear from Toluwalase Fashoro, Holly Woodard, and other equity-focused educators as they grapple with ways of bridging community and school for students from local and international backgrounds. Their unscripted commentary is replete with practical approaches for bringing the notion of community to life in the classroom.
