Identity safe teaching is an approach and a way of creating an equitable classroom. It is not a program, nor is it a checklist of strategies. These strategies are provided to offer ideas for implementation. There are many additional effective strategies that address these components. The strategies are listed and described, explaining the connection with identity safe practices. The document is organized per four Identity Safety domains:
- Child-Centered Teaching
- Cultivating Diversity as a Resource
- Classroom Relationships
- Caring Classrooms
Each strategy is also linked to a "component" within the domain.
