This workshop focuses on how to create a culturally-responsive classroom. Grounded in Critical Race Theory, Validation Theory, and Culturally Responsive Pedagogy, this 90-minute, interactive workshop walks participants through basic components (definition, myths), and the significant benefits of creating a culturally-responsive classroom (student outcomes and monetary wins). Lastly, participants will "see" examples of how to implement culturally-responsive strategies throughout the semester. This workshop is for community college faculty in all disciplines.
