Exclusion

Here's a Zen Pencils' cartoon that comes handy for a social science teacher (& for parents) to talk about diversity, inclusion & need for stepping out from one's comfort zone. Gavin, the cartoonist takes Mark Twain's quote on educational journey. Even though it speaks about racism at a global level, our classrooms are not picture perfect either.

The article is based on my reflections about how inclusion and exclusion are experienced through day to day interactions amongst students and between students and teachers. I also share about certain practices in school that form the school culture and the  role of school leadership in shaping the school; leading to experiences of inclusion. The article shares micro level observations about interactions in school which indicate the dynamic nature of inclusion and exclusion.
