Culturally Responsive Classrooms

Webinar Series: Strategies for Identifying & Eliminating Systemic Bias While Celebrating Student Diversity & Promoting Equity

Systemic bias and racism exist in many classrooms and schools today. Even if it isn’t immediately recognizable, bias and racism can impact learning, engagement, achievement, and students’ social and emotional well-being. In this webinar series, you’ll learn strategies to help recognize implicit bias and how to create learning environments that celebrate diversity, promote equity, and allow children to be themselves within a culturally responsive classroom.
