« All the events

We look forward to showcasing administrators, teachers, and students from five different school districts to discuss Culturally Relevant Teaching, share what’s happening on the ground and dig into the complexity of the work. Workshops will address the following 
Culturally Relevant Teaching practices:

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 - and connect them to pedagogy and content.

4) Make language count – Leverage the languages used in the classroom – vocabulary, nonverbal
communications, native languages, and culturally specific communication styles.

Highlights:

-Fishbowl with 5+ school districts addressing CRT challenges & opportunities
-Lunch & presentation about the connection between CRT and the arts
-Join a growing network of like minded educators from across the Portland metro area

Who should attend and why:

-Educators who are interested in leveraging CRT practices in their schools
-Bring new ideas, materials, and strategies back to your school
-Learn what other districts are doing and how they're problem solving
