Your role in promoting staff well-being in your school

Are teachers prepared and confident to welcome students from a range of cultural, linguistic and religious backgrounds? The growing diversity of Canadian classrooms demands that educators develop the inclusive and intercultural competencies that will allow them to support the success of diverse students, both academically and socially. What are best practices around diversity in the classroom, and what resources/support do teachers need in order to develop the knowledge and skills to implement them? One example would be the approach developed by Dr. Sharroky Hollie that embraces and places value on students’ culture and language, allowing students to use the voice that is linked to their identity. In a world becoming increasingly intolerant to cultural diversity, it is important for Education Canada to point the way towards the most appropriate, engaging and responsive teaching practices in today’s diverse classrooms.
