Any one have any suggestions for simple things teachers can do to support diversity and equity in the classroom? I teach at a botanical garden (environmental education programs for all ages) and want to make sure all our students feel welcome. I noticed the other day a few little things that had come up like paying extra attention to how foreign (or ethnic, but born American) students pronounce their names, not putting name tags on strings around the kids neck (because autistic kids are sometimes bothered by the string rubbing), and referring to animals as both he and her (e.g. "the lizard is moving her tail"). If anyone else has examples of things like this that have been helpful for them, I would love to make a list for all the Garden's educators. Thanks!
