For more than a decade, we've been examining the gaps in our children's experiences as they get ready for Kindergarten and learn to read by 3rd grade. This year, we will look at what each of us can do to build connections with children. Promoting equity—and school success—starts with relationships, with that one teacher, that one adult, who cares.
To help us make that journey, we are excited to introduce our keynote speaker, Dwayne “D.J.” Batiste. D.J. knows well the challenges faced by many of our children.
This 2-day workshop will help you with the long-term work of practicing culturally responsive teaching. You’ll learn how to create conditions that allow ALL students to thrive and embrace rigor—especially students who are under-performing.
Who Should Apply?
Administrators, Principals, Teachers, Coaches—all who are committed to changing practices to ensure culturally responsive teaching is embedded in their school or organization.
Participants must read Culturally Responsive Teaching & The Brain, which will be provided, in advance of the training
