Assignment Task

Overview

Presentation on inclusion, equity, social justice and diversity.

Purpose

There are many stories of diverse experiences that surround us in our everyday life, and as you enter practice you will hear stories from families and children about their experiences.

As an educator, listening to these stories is an active process, as you engage with what families and children are sharing, form relationships with these families and children, and integrate how you have understood these stories into your teaching practice with children.  

This assignment is about making visible our ways of listening to stories and considering how our ways of understanding the stories we are told influence our understandings of inclusion and inclusive practice.
