Questions for reflection

“What are some of the best ways to create an environment of trust in classrooms so that students feel they have the necessary support to ask questions that may expose their vulnerabilities?”

“What ways do you consult with your parent community on sexuality education?” 

actually… a note on this: I really like the series of learning stories this reflective question came from (link above). Not hiding the curriculum around this child’s sexuality was really worthwhile – and cool to read about. The way it is linked in with the learning outcomes being worked on, regardless of curriculum ‘content’, as well as the way the teacher’s role is made clear is excellent.


About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
