This is a singable contract for students to receive on the first day of class. It focuses on respecting others ideas and identity. This contract and code is designed to help create a safe space for students, especially students who feel different from their peers. It allows for expression and a healthy dialogue of ideas. The key is for students to respect one another and listen. It does not aim to infringe on students beliefs or values, wherever they may be, but rather to create a classroom community.
