Educators know that students carry what is on their minds with
them—right into the classroom. Building solid relationships involves
finding out about your students, as well as what is on their minds, and
diffusing tensions even when you don’t have the right answer. How we
connect this process with the ugly intolerance of the polls and
political campaigns of the past year is important. American demographics
are becoming more diverse, and this societal atmosphere will surely
spill into the classroom.
