Join Dr. Brian C. Morrison at the 2014 National Alliance of Black School Educators on Friday, November 21, 2014 from 2:15 – 3:45 for our “Creating a Culturally Responsive Classroom: What Culturally Responsive Teachers Do” workshop.

The most important relationship in the school in regards to student success is that between the teacher and the student. Culturally Responsive Pedagogy (CRP) is a proven methodology to improve student and teacher relationships and increase student success. By using the lived experiences and needs of the students as the starting point for developing classroom practices and lesson development CRP promotes authentic engagement between the students and their learning. It is a methodology that demands all students reach high academic standards. In this workshop participants will learn the fundamental principles of Culturally Responsive Pedagogy. They will learn specific strategies to implement and develop a culturally responsive classroom. Workshop participants will engage in discussion and critical analysis of concepts and issues relevant to the effective implementation of a culturally responsive classroom such as race, ethnicity, white supremacy and privilege. Through lesson analysis participants will practice CRP questioning and lesson planning strategies. At the conclusion of the workshop participants will be able to implement and/or improve their culturally responsive pedagogy.trailer film Going in Style 2017
