This training is comprised of two three-hour sessions intended to help educators reflect on their practice as culturally responsive professionals to increase effectiveness across differences among their students and families. It is intended for any educator (including office staff, before and after school caregivers, ESP, Cert, etc.) interested in creating a new culture of equity and cultural responsiveness in their school community. This training is currently only open to educators of the WEA-Cascade UniServ Council in the Northshore, Shoreline, and Edmonds school districts.
Session 1, Culturally Responsive Classroom Communities, will help educators develop their growth as culturally responsive educators, and increase their effectiveness to engage students from diverse backgrounds, social groups, and cultures through meaningful, caring adult relationships. While Session 2, Culturally Responsive Classroom Management), supports educators by developing their culturally responsive management practice. Practitioners need to be cognizant of the characteristics of the students coming to school, appreciate and integrate their culture and family backgrounds, and be able to work with them in culturally appropriate ways. Providing educators support around CRCM practices will only help ensure that all students have access to a positive, consistent, safe, and equitable educational setting.
