Grade 12 student (2008-2009)
Upper Grand District School Board

When a teacher is an activist, I believe so much is gained. In the classroom, any student can learn about a simple (complex) concept. But with a teacher activist there, the students will gain so much more in the way of understanding real world examples and accepting the world around them through classroom lessons.

If there’s anything I could tell future teachers about being an activist, I would have to say to keep it simple and to not over complicate things. Some teachers may unintentionally give guilt trips or lectures on the out of class concepts. When that happens, everything (the basic concept, the idea coming across, the importance of the issue) is lost.
