I believe inclusion is a vital part of teacher pedagogy, particularly when it comes to student learning. Nell Noddings’ ethics of care construct states that without the security of self, student learning is hampered or even stagnant. She extrapolates that to society as a whole, where the bulk of social issues surrounding crime, addiction, abuse, and the degradation of our social systems are tied to the nurturing (or lack thereof) of the individual. In this podcast, I lay out some of the efforts and rationale that I have implemented in my practice to support my learners, and perhaps even start the conversation towards educational and social reform.
