Transcript of Cultural Proficiency

Cultural
Proficiency Questions? Taco Night! What is Cultural Proficiency? Self-Reflection What are the socializing forces that affect you? Safe Space Our Purpose is to raise awareness of the entitled and stigmatized groups participants belong to or identify with. Line Up Activity What did you notice as you were crossing the hall? Did you have a reaction to any of the questions? What parts were difficult? “I was taught to see racism in individual acts of meanness, not in invisible systems conferring dominance on my group.”
-Peggy McIntosh Thinking about teaching and our kids, what did you take away from
this activity? Cultural Proficiency begins with... With your table group... What is your assessment of how socializing forces are influencing you? Not at all?
Somewhat?
A great deal? If you chose not at all, have you ever attributed to someone else's behavior to the way the person grew up? If you checked somewhat or a great deal, see if there are patterns to your responses. How are your responses influenced by your multiple identities that connect to your race, ethnicity, language, class, gender, sexuality and religion?

(1989) describe CP as “an inside-out process of personal and organizational change”…with a willingness to examine our “assumptions about self, others, and the context in which we work with others.” Lindsey and Terrell (2009) describe CP as a “mindset for how we interact with people”… “CP is a worldview that carries explicit values, language, and standards for effective personal interactions and professional practices – it is NOT a set of independent activities or strategies that you use with others.” Culturally Responsive refers to the ability to learn from and relate respectfully to people from your own and other cultures. Cultural Competence is the willingness and ability of a school system to value the importance of culture in the delivery of services to all students. It is the use of a systems perspective which values all differences and is responsive to diversity at all levels of an organization. Stories of our own... How does this relate to our jobs as educators? Why did we choose this activity? 20 (Self)Critical Things I will Do to Become a More Equitable Educator
