Event Description: Today’s classrooms reflect great ethnic and cultural diversity, posing some challenges for new and experienced teachers alike. At times, it can be difficult to implement effective inclusive practices for our students as their needs can differ substantially from one another. Join this interactive workshop where culturally responsive teaching pedagogy will be introduced and discussed; specific strategies and resources will also be provided.
