Culturally responsive teaching (CRT) is a research-based approach that makes meaningful connections between what students learn in school and their cultures, languages, and life experiences. In this 6 hr summer institute participants will study the theoretical, methodological and practical approaches to recognizing and celebrating culture within their classrooms. Participants will also develop an understanding of what it means to be a culturally competent educator. The institute will use the following questions to guide our learning: What are the critical elements of culturally responsive education? Why does culture matter in today’s classrooms? How can educators develop a culturally responsive lens to engage and develop relationships with students? What strategies can be used to create a culturally responsive environment?
