This workshop is part of our Culturally Relevant Teaching Virtual Workshop Series. 

Workshops will address the following Culturally Relevant Teaching practices (developed by Beaverton School District Equity Office and teacher representatives):

1. Know Yourself- Explore how educator’s own experiences, attitudes, assumptions, values, and beliefs around race, language, culture, gender, and class impact their teaching and learning.

2. Know Your Students- Learn how race, language, culture, gender, and class shape students' beliefs and expectations about learning.

3. Capitalize On Student Expertise-Learn about students’ cultural capital – strengths and experiences they bring into the classroom.

4. Make Language Count- Leverage the languages used in the classroom – vocabulary, nonverbal communications, native languages, and culturally specific communication styles.

Educators should participate to:

  • Leverage their CRT practices
