This month for Free Fridays, I’m going to be posting videos on various topics that are hot button issues right now in Education. Sometimes, I think it’s better to see the person from behind the screen actually interact with you – even if it is on video. Whatever it is, many people find this method a little more helpful than an article on the topic. Today’s video is all about Equity.
Did you know there is a big difference between Equity and Equality?
And unfortunately, schools don’t address this. During this 9 minute video segment, we’ll explore what the different between these two things is and how to use Arts Integration to provide an access point for all learners. I hope you find this resource useful as you prepare for the New Year. Happy Friday!
