Skill-building in the classroom: how to model inclusion while bridging polarities and staying true to my own values

Often our values are clear to us, and we might still not be clear about the “how to”. How to create the culture in our classroom that we are longing for. A culture that demonstrates democratic values, inclusion, peace and respect.

Skill building for modelling inclusion in the classroom

  • Skill building for creating an inclusive classroom
  • Living inclusion in a world of polarization
  • Bridging polarization and staying true to our own values.

Inclusion does not mean including every opinion and behavior – there are borders to bridge and connect over and there are values to care for. A young person might hold opinion’s that we find violent and our invitation is to build connection with the person, valuing needs even when we disagree with the strategies. And to enrich the dialog with the values we want to share with the next generation. We will practice bridging polarization while staying true to our own values.


During the training, through role play, theory and practices, the following subjects are central:

  • How to nurture ourselves, so we can expand our inner space and embrace diversity
  • How to model the democratic values we want children to grow up with.
  • How to change polarization into inclusion and at the same time stand up for our values.
  • How to create a teaching environment where every child experiences belonging through finding both a mirror and a role model of their ethnicity, religion, economic background and so on.

You will explore new possibilities based on your own experiences and prepare dialogues to take home.
