The United States is a country with ever-increasing diversity. Studies show that instructional techniques that connect educational content to a student’s life experience and culture lead to better academic outcomes, especially for children of color.

By the end of this course, educators will identify how to leverage culturally responsive teaching practices to effectively:

  1. Implement learning environments that value students' assets (the lived experiences, perspectives, culture, and community knowledge) that all students bring to school.
  2. Identify and incorporate student assets to create more equitable, student-centered, rigorous learning environments for all children.
  3. Reflect on diversity, equity, and cultural competence and how they use this knowledge in their professional practice.

Course runs October 16 – November 20, 2023
