Description
The Educator’s Equity Companion Guide provides educators and community service providers the tools to build inclusive, safe spaces, by equipping them with knowledge and skills to transform their communities into more productive learning environments. Using real-life examples, discussion questions and by introducing key concepts it prepares readers to engage in difficult conversations with youth and colleagues. They learn how to address issues of inequity as they see them happening, as well as to take action to promote systemic change. The book is broken down into three sections: The Basics, Identities and Inclusive Education. Each chapter begins with a real-life example and then goes into further detail on the issues at play in each scenario. The Basics includes chapters on intersectionality, power, prejudice, discrimination, systemic inequity and privilege. The Identities section includes chapters on ability, faith, mental health, race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, sex and socioeconomic status. The Inclusive Education section includes chapters on being an ally, equity vs. equality, equity-based analysis, equity in the classroom and building capacity, making change. There is also a range of other topics and issues addressed throughout the chapters. This engaging resource can be adapted for use in the classroom and is great for educators and school administrators who are looking to increase their own personal depth and knowledge in the areas of equity and inclusion.
About the author
Harmony Movement was founded in 1994 as a not-for-profit charitable organization to combat inter-racial intolerance and to confront the “us versus them” attitude which was prevalent in Canadian society at the time. Our mandate is to promote diversity, bring awareness to and challenge all forms of discrimination that act as social and cultural barriers to individuals’ full participation in Canadian society. We work in schools and with social service organizations across Ontario, Canada.
