Buckle up! Joe and I were very excited to talk about Courageous Conversations about Contentious Topics, especially as we move through a year of contentious topics. Joe talks about how to set up the norms and environment to have these conversations in your classroom. Joe is a great person to follow on Twitter and has a lot of great information in his blog.
