This webinar will introduce participants to theory, research, and practice related to developing curriculum and instructional practices that respond to the social context in which they work, and will cover principles and approaches to building a professional identity as a cultural responsive educator. The focus will be on how new and pre-service teachers can develop meaningful relationships with students, how they can learn from and about the school and local community of the school, and how new and pre-service teachers can develop and implement culturally responsive classroom management while modeling expectations for students that maximize their capacity.
By the end of the one hour webinar, participants will have an in depth understanding of what it means to be a culturally responsive educator; gain knowledge about their professional identity and examine the importance of behaving ethically and with sensitivity towards social, cultural, economic, environmental, and academic issues; and develop strategies for incorporating culturally responsive instructional practices in their disciplinary domain to maximize students’ learning opportunities.
