AA# 3813 - Culturally Responsive School Leadership: Moving from Theory to Practice - (In-Person)
Course Summary: First coined in the early 1990s “cultural responsiveness” is a phrase that has become part of the educational lexicon but not a part of the fabric of educational practice. Seen as the antidote to the hyper marginalization of students of color and growing achievement disparities that plague our schools few understand what culturally responsive leadership looks like in practice. In this Illinois Administrators Academy three essential questions will be addressed: • What is culturally responsive leadership and why is it necessary? • What do culturally responsive school leaders believe? • What do culturally responsive school leaders do? This workshop is based largely on the scholarship of Gloria Ladson Billings and Muhammad Khalifa. Number of professional development hours: 6 Leadership Area: School Improvement School Leader Standard: 5 -Acting with Integrity, Fairness, and in an Ethical Manner Administrative Target Group: Principal and Assistant Principal Facilitated by: Dr. Lionel Allen
