Equity and Inclusion

Equity and Inclusion

What makes you happy? This was one of the main questions that were asked of our Grade 8-12 students during the scanning phase. There were a variety of answers; however, the more students that we talked to, the more we realized that happiness is when they feel acknowledged and accepted by their peers. Based on this scanning process, we focused on the concept of equity and inclusion. We want to make sure that all students feel valued and accepted.  For the next few months, a team of teachers will explore the idea of using art to create an inclusive environment. Our inquiry question will focus on how can we use art to shift our unconscious biases as educators/ students at McMath in an inclusive and authentic way.
