Achieving Equity through Culturally Proficient Schools and Culturally Responsive Pedagogy


During this session, we will make connections between many best practices to build a positive learning environment, with a focus upon culturally responsive pedagogical practices and culturally proficient school (system) approaches as a means to achieving equity. Throughout the session, concepts will be shared and then discussed in small groups. This sharing of ideas and insights will support a deepened common understanding of the what, why and how of equity and lead all to a personal action step that celebrates both diversity and a sense of belonging.
