Microaggressions in the Classroom
This video defines and gives student-named examples of common microaggressions and how they impact students in the classroom. The instructor names the different types of microaggressions: micro-assaults and micro-insults and micro-invalidations and talks about ways to address them in the classroom. There is a good balance between instruction on what a microaggression is and how to recognize one and student voice. One limitation of this particular video is that the setting is undergraduate college experience; please use this resource with a focus on your own context and students.
