Culturally Responsive Teaching

Planting Seeds of Equity

Planting Seeds of Equity

Change is a continuous process. You cannot assess it with the static yardstick of a limited time frame. When a seed is sown into the ground, you cannot immediately see the plant. You have to be patient. With time, it grows into a large tree. And then the flowers bloom, and only then can the fruits be plucked. - Mamata Banerjee

Culturally Responsive Teaching 

Culturally Responsive Teaching is teaching and leading in such a way that more of your students, across more of their differencing, achieve at a high level and engage at a deeper level. It is knowing and understanding your students.

Cultural Competence 

Cultural Competence is the will and ability to form authentic and effective relationships across differences. 

 

Resources 

The 7 principles of Culturally Responsive Teaching - .pdf document  - Gary Howard 

  1. Students are affirmed in their cultural connections
  2. Teachers are personally inviting 
  3. The classroom is physically and culturally inviting 
  4. Students are reinforced for academic development
  5. Instructional changes are made to accommodate differences
  6. The classroom is managed with a firm, consistent, loving control
  7. Interactions stress collectivity as well as individuality

 

Culture Responsive Teaching & The Brain - website

Culturally responsive pedagogy can be a game-changer in a school’s pursuit of educational equity. There are misconceptions about what culturally responsive pedagogy is and how it works. CRT is more than just a set of multicultural activities, social justice lessons, or kinesthetic learning strategies. It is so much more. Check out the resources at this site.

 

Teaching Tolerance - website 

Teaching Tolerance provides free resources to educators—teachers, administrators, counselors and other practitioners—who work with children from kindergarten through high school. Educators use our materials to supplement the curriculum, to inform their practices, and to create civil and inclusive school communities where children are respected, valued and welcome participants.

Mission Statement

Help create a safe and inclusive climate throughout the district wherein diversity/differences are embraced and celebrated, every student and employee is inspired to achieve, thrive and grow, and where each is empowered to act against any form of intolerance, bigotry (and/or) injustice. 

Director's Corner

Support from the Equity, Justice, and Inclusion (EJI) department aims to empower educators as educational leaders and establish equity for all students. The Equity, Justice, and Inclusion department and teams are partners and collaborators in school improvement. The EJI department and team members use standards and data, supporting schools forward in a growth mindset by way of advocacy, social justice, and systemic change. As we work together towards eliminating barriers to student success, we assure that every student has the opportunity for access, attainment, and achievement.

Latinx encompasses those who identify outside of the gender binary, such as
transgender people or those who are gender-fluid.

Weber High School’s Koby Pack takes 1st place at FBLA National Leadership Conference

Competing in San Antonio, Texas among 12,000 students in over 70 categories, Koby Pack, a Weber High student brought home 1st Place and the title of National Champion in the Sales Presentation Category.

Congratulations to Koby Pack led by Mr. Alan Rawlins, business/marketing instructor and FBLA advisor.

Although 105 individuals competed at the national leadership conference in the Sales Presentation event, it is not easy to get there or to get into finals. Only two percent of FBLA students advance to the national level, so just getting there to compete is a great achievement.  For students to make finals at Nationals they must be in the top 2 of their preliminary section out of 13-14 students.

Koby took first place at the State competition in March out of 28 individuals where he had to finish in the top two to advance to Nationals. Along with Koby, 12 other students from Weber High also attended Nationals in a variety of other events.
