Students in today’s classrooms are unique individuals they are also simultaneously members of multiple communities. During this session, educational leader Dr. Ernest Morrell will speak on how culturally responsive instruction, both as a curriculum and a pedagogical approach, embraces these identities and works to positively enhance student voice and engagement.

Session participants will leave with (1) knowledge of the background and challenges in today’s classrooms that can be answered with the core principles of culturally responsive instruction, (2) an understanding of how cultural misunderstandings and intolerance, as well as underrepresentation, is detrimental to learning , and (3) a sampling of CRE and engagement strategies (i.e. Multicultural Readings of Literature, Critical Media Literacy, Student Voice in the Polyvocal Classroom, and Youth-initiated Community Research Projects) that teachers and administrators can implement to positively impact student growth and morale.

This is a virutal course.
