WorkshopsCreating Inclusive & Equitable Learning Environments
Wednesday, December 2
A school should become more culturally responsive to provide better services for their consumers (students & families). In a global society, a school cannot be academically, socially or programmatically culturally responsive unless it is culturally competent. Striving for cultural competence is a long-term developmental process. It is a process in which schools can measure its progress according to its achievement of specific developmental tasks. This workshop will examine several topics (cultural responsiveness, cultural competency, equity and implicit bias) and how these topics impact policy, practices, and programs in schools.
