Navigating Difficult Conversations in the Classroom

  • Have you ever explored a hot topic, current event, or discipline specific controversy in the classroom?  The diversity of ideas, perspectives, and experiences of students can present unique opportunities and challenges for dialogue within the classroom. Sometimes these conversations can become high-stakes - where the combination of divergent opinions and high-running emotions create challenges for maintaining a safe and positive learning environment. This Teaching Tool seeks to provide a process for facilitating challenging conversations within the classroom through the use of Non-Violent Communication (NVC).
