"It's ok to talk about it!" The Case for Culturally Relevant Pedagogy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As our populace grows increasingly diverse, it's incumbent upon educators to implement pedagogies that reach every single learner. Culturally relevant pedagogy suggests how to shift our attitudes and practices to make learning relevant and meaningful for every student in our classrooms to better position them for academic success. Engage in a dialogue about attitudes and practices to move us towards becoming culturally relevant teachers!
