    1. Clark based his book selection framework on a social justice curriculum, and it consists of four components: identity, respect, justice, and action, which build on each other. “When we were evaluating books, we would try to find books that fell into one of those four categories,” he said, noting that the majority of considered titles landed in the identity group “because we want young people to develop a sense of who they are and to see themselves.” According to Clark, “if young people have a strong sense of who they are, then respect enters in, meaning that they respect other people and they respect different perspectives and points of view. And when you have identity and respect, children are better able to identify instances of injustice, thereby wanting to see justice.” And lastly, “action,” the fourth element of the framework, Clark said, “gives young people suggestions or examples of things that they can do to take action when they see injustice.”

    1. Keep in mind that students who find social interaction problematic are not going to suddenly feel better if they are forced into it.

      Yes this is key to me because even though I don’t mind participating I know that if I was forced into it it wouldn’t feel like much of a choice. Instead it would feel like an obligation to say something. I enjoy sharing more when it is because I want to share. I get very anxious when a teacher says “ok then I will choose a volunteer,” because sometimes I don’t have an answer to the question she had or I would just like to listen to what she or others think. I think that giving students the choice to participate and share is essential. I think that if anything teachers could also make groups for people who are not comfortable speaking in a big group so that it allows everyone to participate.

    2. reminding your students that you value and respect their privacy and their culture.

      This constant reminder will make students feel inclusive and reduce the chances of unintended harm.

    1. To understand his duties to his neighbours, & country, and to discharge with competence the functions confided to him by either.

      This idea seems to be really important in being a conscious and involved member of society in our time. In light of recent events, we can look to interpret the "duties to [our] neighbors" to mean that we need to care for and support each other, regardless of differences.

    1. But we refuse to let that bring us down, we refuse to let racists tell us how to live our lives, we refuse to live with fear.

    1. Neither my ASD and ADHD are as much of an impact on me now than it was several years ago, but I still carry some of the symptoms of it (Stuttering, repetitive movements, etc.), none of it being life threatening of course. The big turning point for me was when I met two game developers from Wargaming.net, as they have talked to me about their jobs and what I need to do in order to do their jobs well

      I have nothing but respect for how you take the initiative in not letting your affliction affect you and your everyday life, avoiding the role of a sort of roadblock that they have the potential of becoming.

    1. “organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”.

      Google obviously wants to have all the answers to all possible absurd questions. The danger with this goal is that they positioned the persons that represents part of the diversity of the world as not worthy of being treated with respect.

    1. They are a person deserving of your not infrequent acknowledgment and worthy of appreciation and respect. When was the last time you thanked them — really thanked them?

    1. Gorgias said that you should kill your opponents' earnestness with jesting and their jesting with earnestness;

      This will only work, though, if your audience looks to you as some sort of authority figure - if you don't seem to know what you're talking about, I think that doing what Gorgias suggests would only make you look foolish.
