This professional development module is designed to help teachers take action and create the conditions that bring the seven main components of Culturally Responsive Pedagogy to life:

  • building and drawing upon intergroup awareness, understanding and skills
  • creating classroom environments that reflect diversity, equity and justice
  • engaging families and communities in ways that are meaningful and culturally competent
  • encouraging students to speak out against bias and injustice
  • making the implementation of anti-bias curriculum part of larger individual, school and community action
  • supporting students' identities and making it safe for them to fully be themselves
  • using instructional strategies that support diverse learning styles and allow for the development of critical thinking skills
