Creating Culturally Responsive Classrooms/Teaching – since this area is rarely taught as part of teacher preparation coursework, many teachers often feel underprepared to meet the needs of students they encounter in their classrooms. Through an exploration of evidence-based concepts regarding learning styles, locus of control, and culturally responsive theories, participants gain a new understanding of the children they teach and how to effectively instruct each of them. This series of workshops helps and reinforces the understanding that it is indeed true that “all children can learn,” if educators are equipped with the proper tools and strategies to effectively reach them.
