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.
