In “A Talk to Teachers”, James Baldwin cautioned that teachers have to be willing to “go for broke” when it comes to the work that surrounds molding and shaping young minds.
In this workshop, educators will be able to develop an understanding of what Culturally Responsive/Relevant Teaching is, and how they can situate such practices within the realms of their classrooms or schools. Often, the term “culturally responsive teaching” evokes ideas of implementing students’ cultures into classroom settings and practices, but this workshop will enable educators to be able to understand how CRT is the foundation upon which anti – racist work can be carried out in schools.
During this session, educators will learn:
- how the social and historical contexts of our country begs for CRT practices
- What CRT is
- How CRT can be implemented into lessons and other aspects of the classroom
- The impacts of using CRT
- How CRT can be used as a framework to guide school wide practices and policies, such as approaches to discipline
