Participants will learn that we don’t need to look like our students to be successful with our students, but we must with purpose and process engage in learning who our students really are, including; their customs, traditions and respect of their language. In this session participants will learn how educators are using a Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) framework to “calibrate” their schools definition of CRT while at the same time using data to drive their decisions and discussions of what teachers “value” about culture and diversity, and learning more about the “frequency” by which those values are enacted in classrooms. Participants will learn strategies that schools are using to build real and relevant relationships with diverse students. Additionally, participants will learn about the various data tools and protocols educators are using to measure and discuss the culturally responsive teaching “gaps” that exist in their schools.
