The webinar provides practical advice for teachers on what to say when children say things like “girls can’t be doctors” as well as providing ideas for books and music that can be used to address this topic. Mara is a specialist in diversity and social justice issues, including full inclusion, anti-racism teaching, bullying and harassment, cooperative learning, and using the arts to teach against oppression.
