From this discussion, the students gained insight on what their classmates and friends want and need to be respected. One major takeaway from this discussion was that although respect looks the same for most people, everyone has his or her own needs that we must be aware of. This was a great forum for students to express themselves and discuss situations, both hypothetical and real, in which respect was lacking or in question. The students were not the only ones who gained from this conversation though. As a teacher, this discussion provided me with insight into any issues students might have been having that they would not have otherwise brought to light. Most importantly, this discussion continued in creating a safe, respectful learning space for every student.
