Identity Safe Activities for the Classroom

Identity safe classrooms are created by an infinite number of teaching strategies.  No one strategy is sufficient to create an identity safe classroom, but a constellation of strategies, working together, can.  Yet, we recognize that teachers need to start somewhere.

In the last chapter of the book we suggest some simple, but powerful ways to get started. And at the end of each chapter we offer activities that can be done to reflect on practice and explore both the concepts of identity safety and ways to begin to incorporate them into your practice. 

Now you can download pdf versions of the activities provided in the book. They are in a worksheet format and can be accessed at www.corwin.com/identitysafe. We caution you not to do the activities without reading the chapter, because they will not have the depth of meaning or help you achieve your purpose.

Check this page in the near future for more activities.
