Culturally Responsive Education: The Why

Play the video for this session
While equity and the practice of cultural responsiveness is a focus in many schools today, the shift to remote/hybrid instruction has created an even greater need. Addressing issues of inequity and ensuring that all students have what they need to succeed can seem exacerbated when students are not physically present in school. This introductory module defines equity and equality in order to set the purpose for cultural responsiveness in remote/hybrid learning environments.

Welcoming and Affirming Learning Environments

The first principle in the NYSED CRSE framework, a “Welcoming and Affirming Environment” feels safe. It is a space where people can find themselves represented and reflected, and where they understand that all people are treated with respect and dignity. The environment ensures all cultural identities (i.e. race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, language, religion, socioeconomic background) are affirmed, valued, and used as vehicles for teaching and learning.
