Culturally Responsive Teaching Series

In this series, your teachers will be equipped to make adaptive changes

to the Curriculum and Pedagogy.

 Your teacher  will also learn how educational systems work to oppress marginalized students and how  to  be a transformational, anti-racist, and abolitionist educator.  

 

To make the adaptive change that is required to become a culturally-responsive educator, they will  need to understand their role in changing the tide that will lead to greater academic success for their students and reduced academic disparities.

 

Unlike other culturally-responsive trainings that focus only on strategies, we also provide adequate context and theory behind those strategies.
