Ted Talk: Christopher Emdin - Teach Teachers How to Create Magic
Finding your magic in the classroom can be challenging and frustrating. One of the thing we need to remember is that your magic comes from the community you work in. By engaging with the community, you not only tap into the magic around you, but you also end up finding the magic that was in you all along. Check out Dr. Emdin's rejuvenating speech from Ted Talk about finding your magic in the classroom.

Welcome to the Cultural Consciousness Corner. This platform was created to help share culturally relevant material that can be used in the classroom to help engage students in conscious learning. This week, we are sharing resources on bullying in the classroom. Whether elementary, middle school, or high school, bullying can be detrimental to a productive and positive learning environment. Your ability to navigate the power and social dynamics of situations in your classroom is a direct reflection of your capacity for teaching and leading across lines of difference influences by cultural and societal socializations.
Take a look at the information below to see how Teaching Tolerance can help you teach your students about effects of bullying. (Don’t forget to sign up for the free teacher kit!)
