  1. Thanks, Jeff, for sharing the SMEL IT test. The Ed Dept at Dordt is reading a book entitled “Is Everyone Really Equal?”. The author offered these guidelines that align nicely with yours! Strive for intellectual humility. Recognize the difference between opinions and informed knowledge. Let go of personal anecdotal evidence and look at broader societal patterns. Notice your own defensive reactions and attempt to use these reactions as entry points for gaining deeper self-knowledge. Recognize how your own social positionality (race, class, gender, ability, status) informs your perspectives. “Let’s do it well!”
