The workshop is geared toward teachers, support staff and community educators.

Participants will be able to

  • describe three ways to build an inclusive classroom community;

  • describe two strategies for dealing with bullying and exclusion in the classroom; and

  • explain how children's literature can be used to teach students to stop bullying and become active allies to those who are experiencing teasing or exclusion.

The training will be presented by Mara Sapon-Shevin, Professor of Inclusive Education at Syracuse University, where she prepares teachers to be inclusive teachers and works to support inclusion in schools.
