A key element to creating a classroom free of ableism is reimagining the concept of inclusivity. But with so many students with individualized learning programs, sometimes it can be difficult to create a learning environment that is as inclusive as you’d like it to be.

Discover what Special Education teacher Jeremy Ault has to share about the ways in which educators can approach ableism by formatting your instruction, and shifting both your and your student’s mindsets in a short video in the post on the aka Teacher blog.

Hosted by PBS Wisconsin Education, and created with and for Wisconsin educators, the aka Teacher blog offers a space for exploring the many hats educators today wear, and the topics that aren’t covered in teacher preparation programs.

Anti-Racist Education | aka Teacher
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

A major part of being an anti-racist educator is making sure that all of your students feel represented. Some White educators may feel overwhelmed, and maybe even nervous, when trying to create a space where students feel that they’re being seen and heard, because you want to make sure you ‘get it right’.

But discomfort is good, and it’s part of the growth that needs to happen on your journey to becoming an anti-racist educator. BIPOC students don’t have time for White educators to get comfortable, and it’s on White educators to take those first steps.

Discover what Wisconsin educators, Gail Bertram and Marguerite Penick-Parks have to share about the things you can do immediately to begin creating anti-racist learning environments, from the books you read to your students, to the physical spaces in which learning takes place in a short video and companion essay in the post on the aka Teacher blog.

How can a shirt show us what people did for fun back in the day?

Bowling got its start at least as far back as the Middle Ages, but the game we know today became big in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s, and Wisconsin got in on the game. Bowlers like Earlene Fuller made and wore custom-made shirts and sets that matched their team, showing fashion and cultural connections to bring them luck at the lanes.

This episode is part of The Look Back, a series made for learners in grades 4-6 that explores eras from Wisconsin’s history through artifacts. The collection is hosted by historians who model an inquiry process: sharing artifacts, asking questions, visiting archives and museums to learn more, telling the story of their findings as they go, and making connections to our lives today.
