This book focuses on strategies that positively affect student learning and attachment to schooling, in spite of social inequalities. Research shows that students in identity safe classrooms learn better and like school more than peers in other classrooms. In identity safe classrooms, teachers strive to ensure that students: 
  • Feel their identity is an asset rather than a barrier to success
  • Experience diversity as a resource for learning
  • Form positive relationships with fellow students and their teacher
  • Learn in an environment with a challenging curriculum and high expectations
  • Develop a sense of belonging and empathy for others as they learn to use pro-social skills and practice cooperation
