The CIRLI method calls on teachers to examine their own attitudes and perceptions of both students and communities as well as the behaviors related to the real life issues that students face.
Self assessment is an exercise where each teacher examines his or her own attitudes and dispositions. Students are adept at picking up both verbal and nonverbal cues that indicate how teachers really feel about them as people and their capacity to learn.
Below are a few suggestions to help you reflect on your own experience and attitudes towards both real life issues that students confront and teaching diverse student populations.
