This edWebinar explores the concept of revolutionary love and how teachers can use this knowledge to create a classroom community that affirms and celebrates all students’ identities, languages, and cultures. Viewers reflect on their perception of loving pedagogies and the necessity of integrating revolutionary love into teaching practices.

By the end of this engaging session, viewers are able to:

  • Analyze and reflect on loving pedagogies in classrooms and schools
  • Examine the role of loving pedagogies in creating equitable and inclusive learning
  • Define the components of the Revolutionary Love Framework (Believe-Know-Do)
  • Implement strategies for building classroom community (co-creating norms, using culturally inclusive inventories for reading, sharing name stories and poems, engaging in intergenerational writing, and utilizing community-building books)

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK-5 teachers, school leaders, and occupational therapists.
