By creating a more culturally responsive learning environment ALL students are empowered with the knowledge and skills needed to achieve at their highest levels. In this dynamic and interactive workshop participants gain the fundamental knowledge and resources required to implement a culturally responsive pedagogy (CRP) in their practice. By empowering teachers with the strategies and techniques that will help them better understand their students and then training them how to use that knowledge to create lessons that are relevant to the student’s lived experience the teaching and learning process becomes more effective. Culturally Responsive Pedagogy is one of the most effective teaching methodologies that has proven success in improving student learning, understanding and achievement.
