Have you started your day by discovering a crime has been committed on or near campus (and involves one of the students or a colleague)? Has a student ever made a racist comment in class during an open discussion? Both situations represent moments in the classroom where we’re not sure how to react. But they are not the same. Learning how to manage challenging topics we’ve brought up in our classes is slightly different than waking in the morning to find that something unexpected has unfolded.
