Important Session Information:

"Culturally responsive teaching is about helping culturally and linguistically diverse students who have been marginalized in schools build their skill and capacity to do rigorous work." -Zaretta Hammond

Educators play a crucial role in helping students talk openly about the historical roots and contemporary manifestations of social inequity and discrimination. Regardless of who you are, your intentions or how long you've been teaching, we can all benefit from a one degree shift in our thinking & understanding. One degree may seem insignificant, but a slight shift can make a substantial impact in understanding your students, your awareness, and your knowledge of their diverse backgrounds.

We invite you to join Katrice Quitter and a cohort of other educators for a unique three day, professional development series. This learning opportunity will allow you to explore, study and discuss the research of world-renowned educators and researchers in multicultural and diverse studies. Moving from theory to application, this unique cohort will take learning from each session back to their schools and classrooms to make an impact by applying strategies and ideas to support students with diverse backgrounds. Come talk, learn, listen, and share how you honor and meet the needs of diverse learners in your classroom.

"The stereotypical images we hold toward groups are powerful in influencing what people see and expect of students. Unless educators consciously try to undermine and work against these kinds of stereotypes, they often act on them unconsciously." -Pedro Noguera
