Culturally Responsive Teaching: Building Resiliency and Academic Mindset in Today’s Classroom

Saturday, April 4th, 9:45am - 11:00am - Session I

We often hear the phrase “culturally responsive teaching” in the education landscape, but what is it and what is it NOT? During this session, you will learn about the foundations of culturally responsive education and how to incorporate CRT into your classroom through strong pedagogical approaches and relevant, engaging resources. You will walk away with a deeper understanding about CRT and how you can weave practices into your classroom that provide students with “mirrors and windows” that create a lasting connection to their learning community.

She believes that educators have the power to bring students to the threshold of their minds every day, so they can think, innovate and find their voices.
