New Teacher PD- Culturally Responsive Teaching

Ameena Elder and Nadra Shami facilitated an hour long presentation titled “Culturally Responsive Teaching: Getting to Know Your Arab Students” to 55 new teachers across the district.  This presentation examined the mismatch between Arab home culture and US school culture in order to support the advancement of educational equity in the classroom. Participants developed an understanding of the cultural capital students bring and how implementation of culturally responsive practices can impact social and academic success.  Our department received positive feedback following the presentation.
