Culturally Responsive Teaching: The Essentials

What is culturally responsive teaching, and how might culturally responsive practices meet the social and academic needs of students? The workshop highlights conceptions and tools teachers and school leaders need to address and meet the needs of all students, especially students living below the poverty line, those whose first language is not English, those who are Black and Brown, and those who might experience outside of school challenges across the United States. Particular attention will be placed on student assets and teacher practices that support students.  Instructional practices that are culturally responsive to the very humanity of students will be addressed for classroom and school transformation.
