How can we encourage all our students to communicate and participate in school each day? How can we be culturally responsive with the methods and styles of communication in our classrooms? A guiding principle of the Responsive Classroom approach, from the Center for Responsive Schools, states, “What we know and believe about our students—individually, culturally, developmentally—informs our expectations, reactions, and attitudes about those students.” How educators use that knowledge impacts students’ learning and sense of belonging.
In this webinar, Responsive Classroom consulting teachers will discuss the importance of recognizing and acknowledging cultural differences in communication that may exist between adults and students. They will also share strategies for creating a welcoming, positive classroom environment that represents all students. This webinar is appropriate for educators of students in kindergarten through 8th grade.
