Details
'This professional learning package is designed to build a foundational understanding of equity and cultural responsiveness. Overall, the aim is to ensure that participants establish a common vocabulary while beginning to interrogate their personal, professional, and institutional capacity within these two areas.
Participants will define common terms and imagery that appear in conversations about equity, explore the concept of cultural responsiveness through personal, professional, and institutional lenses, and identify initial strengths, challenges, and needs regarding the capacity to implement culturally responsive practices.
Objectives:
-Define common terms and imagery that appear in conversations about equity
It is essential to have common definitions within the Partnership so that we are precise in our discussions
and clear on our desired outcomes.
-Explore the concept of cultural responsiveness through personal, professional, and institutional lenses
Culturally responsive teaching is expressly defined through the NYSED CRSE Framework, as well as
other foundational texts that anchor the work of the TAP for Equity and the Partnership at large.
-In order to effectively implement culturally responsive practices and move toward equitable outcomes
for all students, educators must take every opportunity to critically reflect on a personal, professional,
and institutional level.
-Identify initial strengths, challenges, and needs regarding the capacity to implement culturally
responsive practices
-Educators have varying levels of exposure to and experience with culturally responsive practice, as a result of their own professional development and their EOs’ efforts to build capacity in this work.
