What to expect:
In our DEI conversations so far this year we've discussed the "what" of culturally responsive learning. What about the how? What makes an instructional strategy culturally responsive (or not)? Every day, teachers make decisions to use strategies that they hope will engage, support, and hold students accountable for learning.
The meeting will feature Shane Weigand of the Anti-Racist Curriculum Project on the same topic. In this meeting we will discuss the pedagogical approaches (including strategies from AVID) that could be culturally responsive, or not, depending on how they are used. We will highlight and experience various strategies and discuss their implications.
