Culturally Competent & Responsive Educators
In order to be culturally responsive...
Investigate personal, cultural self-identity and personal biases and their potential effect on decision-making in the classroom
Identify & implement strategies for supporting scholars based on their context
1. Fill out the identity grid
2. Reflect on how each of these things impacts how you approach your work with students
3. Discuss with an eye contact partner
Defining Culturally Responsive
Compare & contrast these two terms
Responsive- fits curriculum around context of the students & their families
Relevant- fits students context into the curriculum
Culturally responsive teaching is...
We have to take a hard look at ourselves- where we came from and how it impacts the way in which we look at the world.
We have to be consistently reflective.
We have to learn about other cultures.
We have to truly get to know our students and their families.
We have to keep an open mind.
We have to assume the best.

Culturally Responsive Curriculum
"If they do not feel connected to a teacher on a emotional level, then they will not learn, they will not put out the effort" (Delpit in City Kids, City Schools, 2008, p. 126).
The Road Ahead
"Education in a democracy requires imagination, initiative, engagement, and courage..."
"Our stance must become identification with, not identification of- our approach one of solidarity, not service."
(Ayers, 2008, p. 6)
Students Are People, Too
Step 1: Gather information about your students from part I of your project (if OK'd by your PLE teacher and school)
Step 2: Find or create a lesson plan that RESPONDS to the needs of your students (culturally, socially, emotionally, interest based, intelligence)
Step 3: Write a 2 page paper to explain how the LP responds to the needs of your class
The truth is in the numbers
1. prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair.
What is my family like?
What have I seen and heard from my family regarding other cultures? Minority groups?
What do I catch myself saying or thinking about people, groups or individuals that are different than me?
Cultural Competency Continuum
"The educational challenges of today are intimately linked to longstanding inequities that continue to beleaguer so many among us" (Baldwin in City Kids, City Schools, 2008, prologue).
How will YOU begin your journey to cultural responsive teaching?!
"...good teaching is not only about changing the world or changing the lives of others- it's about changing ourselves- a transformation from within" (Michie in City Kids, City Schools, 2008, p. 56).
Something to keep in mind...
"in ways that recognize & respect their experiences and wisdom, and that draw on their intellectual, artistic, moral, and critical insights" (Ayers, et al., 2008, p. 23).

"Culturally responsive pedagogy is a student-centered approach to teaching in which the students’ unique cultural strengths are identified and nurtured to promote student achievement and a sense of well-being about the student’s cultural place in the world." -Matthew Lynch via The Huffington Post
Cultural Competency is...
"Cultural competence is having an awareness of one’s own cultural identity and views about difference, and the ability to learn and build on the varying cultural and community norms of students and their families. It is the ability to understand the within-group differences that make each student unique, while celebrating the between-group variations that make our country a tapestry..."
