What does it mean to be “Culturally Responsive?”

What does this look like in a learning environment?

Our local schools are increasingly diverse, necessitating learning environments that are culturally responsive. According to the National Center for Culturally Responsive Educational Systems (NCCREST), cultural responsiveness is the ability to learn from and relate respectfully with people of your own culture as well as those from other cultures.” But what does this entail, and how do you implement it? This workshop will show you!

This session will address the development of cultural competence (with culture encompassing a broad sense) among education professionals. It will cover how to implement culturally responsive strategies into the classroom, including interpersonal communication, teaching methods and behavior management strategies. Further, evidence of academic benefits of culturally responsive instructional strategies for all students will be identified using findings from published research.
