Cultural Responsiveness training helps participants identify cultural values and those of students and families they interact with. Content topics include challenges and opportunities that arise from differing values, ways to understand others, and the impact of historical and present realities in ways we may not be aware. Strategies for application are discussed and practiced.
Recommended time for this training is 6 hours and can be done in one session or broken into smaller sessions.
Professional development support is offered in a variety of formats. Compelling professional development workshops, modeling best practices in the classroom, observing teacher practice and providing feedback, and leading professional learning communities are customizable options offered to support literacy instruction across all content areas. Parent engagement workshops to support learning in the home are available to foster strong home to school connections.
Boys want to learn but they aren’t learning as well as girls are in many schools. The stats reveal boys receive the highest amount of behavior referrals, the majority of Ds and Fs, and are behind in state testing. This "boy-friendly" workshop focuses on improving learning for boys, which leads to increased motivation and a reduction in behavior challenges. Evidence-based strategies will be taught that teachers can immediately implement in their classrooms. These strategies support increases in girls' achievement and performance, as well.
