Culturally Responsive Teaching Facilitation Guide

Culturally Responsive Teaching is more than simply celebrating diverse cultures or building strong relationships.

In order to provide equitable outcomes for a growing diverse student population, it’s important that we truly examine our beliefs, actions and instructional practices. Culturally Responsive Teaching is more than simply celebrating diverse cultures or building strong relationships. It’s identifying our students’ varied perspectives and experiences in order to build bridges toward rigorous learning. It’s knowing yourself, your own assumptions and biases, and how these impact interactions with others.

This guide offers support in framing and reframing mindsets about culturally responsive teaching, and offers resources to help you establish a culturally responsive environment in your school community. It includes real-life scenarios with frameworks for facilitating each with a group.

Through reflection, discussion, and interactive exercises, participants will build cultural proficiency, learn strategies to interrupt systems of bias and inequity in their practices, as well as explore methods for making learning more relevant and rigorous for students. This guide serves as a pathway towards greater self-awareness, inclusivity, and equity for all students.
