THE CENTER FOR CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING
This level involves four sessions of knowledge and context building for any participant. For most, culturally and linguistically responsive teaching (CLR) is a new concept that as been misunderstood and/or misconstrued. After experiencing these four sessions, participants will have a deep understanding of the socio-historic connection to the present-day systemic failure and why culturally and linguistically responsive teaching and learning is necessary.
At this level, educators are provided with specific, concrete strategies and activities to infuse CLR into everyday learning practices in classrooms and schools. Although CLR is not a curriculum, there are detailed steps practitioners can take to positively impact the learning of underserved students. We offer a series of workshops that advance the skills of practicing teachers and administrators.
Classrooms, schools, and districts are learning systems. CCRTL’s goal is to institutionalize CLR into these systems, making it an integral part. We provide demonstration lessons and coaching with technical feedback for classrooms and schools. We provide consultation and make recommendations for districts striving to be culturally responsive.
