Based on the work of Zaretta Hammond, this workshop looks beyond the basics of acknowledging that culture impacts teaching and learning, and focuses on the cognitive skills and academic mindset that students need to succeed. Participants will explore how to flip the deficit model on its head and learn to use the cultural tools that students bring to the classroom. We will engage in a review of brain-based teaching and participants will have the opportunity to explore various "thinking routines" based on their specific students, leaving with strategies that they can apply immediately.
