Presented by Stephanie Smith Budhai and Kristine Lewis Grant
Join authors of the new book, Culturally Responsive Teaching Online and In Person: An Action Planner for Dynamic Equitable Learning Environments, Stephanie Smith Budhai and Kristine Lewis Grant as they share ways K-12 teachers can maximize students’ cultural capital and assets to support their learning in online and in-person learning environments. The content in this session can be used by K-12 teachers to build the knowledge, awareness, skills, and dispositions to pivot instruction to facilitate equitable, inclusive, and anti-racist learning experiences that transcend cultural, social, and linguistic backgrounds.
Participants will learn to:
Reframe their mindset towards growth that takes into account the diverse lived experiences of all learners, their families, and communities
Eliminate deficit thinking and provide every learner, in every educational setting, the ability to connect with the curriculum in authentic and equitable ways
Employ strengths-based pedagogical approaches across learning modalities
