An Introduction to Culturally Responsive Teaching

This workshop discusses teacher's considerations of critical race theory and best practices for its application.

We will begin the program by introducing what the approach is and how it came to be. The workshop will begin with the teacher’s consideration of his/her own perspectives of critical race theory. Next, the workshop presenter will describe Gloria Ladson-Billings and other authorities’ perspectives of the fields of culturally relevant pedagogy and the characteristics of a culturally responsive classroom. Participants will work in pairs to review various practices as they identify the characteristics found in each scenario. The workshop will end with each participant considering a present practice and how he/she can revise it to incorporate culturally relevant strategies.
