Research has shown cultural responsiveness is critically important to the education of our students. Often, culturally responsive teaching is seen as a way to reduce behavior problems or motivate students rather than a way to support rigorous intellectual development. How do we move from “culturally responsive teaching principles” to “culturally responsive teaching practices” to help our students become self-directed, independent learners?
Please join the Oregon Education Association in a day of facilitated learning about how we continue to close the opportunity gap by actively engaging students and empowering them to take ownership of their own learning.
