Assembling your “Nerd Herd:” Creating a Safe Space for Students in Your School
4:15 PM – 5:15 PM Room 1A05
Despite Geek culture being at the forefront of popular culture today, many young Comic Con lovers feel isolated in their school community. With bullying of young people on the basis of their interests being one of the most challenging problems to overcome, how can teachers help foster their students’ interests and give them a safe place to share them with like minded peers? Educators come together to talk about how they built their “Nerd Herd” and how it has done just that. They share their stories and those of their students on how bringing like minded people together can not only create a barrier against outside negativity but also help build confidence and self-respect.
