Culturally Relevant Pedagogy
Culturally Responsive Teaching (Gay, 2000; Ladson-Billings, 1997) is not a new concept; however, educators across the nation continue to struggle with its implementation, moving from concept to classroom practice. In these two, 90-minute interactive workshops, educators will review the tenets of culturally responsive teaching by deep diving into critical cultural concepts - acculturation (Berry, 1994, 2001), the immigrant paradox (Gans, 1992), and Funds of Knowledge (Gonzalez, Moll, & Amanti, 2005). Drawing upon take-aways from our deep dive, we will consider ways to replace deficit perspectives with ones that leverage the cultural and linguistic abundance that ELs bring to our classrooms and schools. These sessions will not be recorded. Act 48 credit hours are available for educators who complete the workshop.
