    Safe Spaces or Brave Spaces? - 108

    Safe Spaces or Brave Spaces? - 108

    In Episode 108, Chey and Pav talk about Safe Spaces versus Brave Spaces - what’s the difference between the two? How can we be setting up a space for students to engage in meaningful conversations using one or both of these? What are the implications of setting up a space that's "safe" and is that even possible? Chey and Pav touch on many topics as they relate to social justice issues - identity, oppression, power and privilege - and how these are affected by the language we use when advocating for spaces where we can have Courageous Conversations (Singleton, 2005).

Real voices in real issues

I think that this is a very valuable podcasts for teachers and Admin to listen to as they thoughtfully reflect and discuss on some of the important topics that teachers are thinking about. It is a perfect blend of -off-the-cuff and professional preparation and reflection.

AlwaysLearning AlwaysEvolving ,

Dynamic Duo

These two work really well together and the episodes are packed with quality content. They have amazing guests and the episodes with just the two of them are also really powerful!
