Call Number: LC191.94 .E78 2021
Faculty across disciplines want to provide equitable and inclusive classrooms to support all students, but they are often overwhelmed by the breadth of content they must cover, leaving little time to address equity and inclusion in their teaching.

Bringing together practical lesson plans and instructional options that faculty can use and adapt to deliver content in a way that is mindful of inclusion and equity, this book further extends the practical application of social justice principles.
