Culturally Responsive Teaching: From Concept to Classroom Practice
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 this 90-minute interactive workshop, 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.

Intended audience: K-12 content teachers; K-12 ESL Specialists; school and district administrators; afterschool educators

Instructor: Andrea G. Kolb, Statewide Multilingual Education Project Manager, Center for Schools and Communities
