Webinar Description (Note: Replay will not be available)
In this virtual, foundational 90-minute session, Dr. Gholdy Muhammad will clearly define culture, equity, anti-racism and culturally & historically responsive education. Together, culture will be explored and revisited in deep, multifaceted ways. We will consider our own cultural identities and approaches to learning the cultures/identities of students. By the end of this session, the educators will understand culture and will be charged to engage in self-identity work. The facilitator will also introduce educators to the model of culturally and historically responsive education. Educators will learn a brief history of CHRE and the power of education among communities of color in the United States. In addition, educators will be introduced to a four-layered equity model for teaching and learning (1) identity, (2) skills, (3) intellectualism and (4) criticality. Exemplar CHRE lesson and unit plans across the contents and grade levels will be shown and discussed. The session will end with practical considerations for writing equitable lesson and unit plans.
