Culturally Responsive Teaching: A Guide for Urban Educators

This collection is designed to help teachers build their practice in terms of culturally responsive teaching and global competence.  The resources in this collection can be used to lead a professional learning series on this instructional framework and/or the instructional try-its can be used to embed culturally responsive teaching into practice.   As suggested in the Powerpoint template, a series on this topic could consist of six 35-minute sessions that occur on a weekly basis.   Included are five instructional try-its that teachers can use to expand the number of weeks dedicated to this learning series and/or implement in their classrooms as part of their action plan. 

Additional uses for this collection include 1) examining the global competence framework developed by the Asia Society and the role that thinking plays in learning and instruction, 2) exploring the social action approach of culturally responsive teaching (which matches almost exactly with the “take action” piece of the global competence framework) and 3) asking questions in order to understand the students’ lives and world views. Through the instructional try-Its, teachers can develop approaches and understandings that will help them empower their students as they learn to challenge the power structures that create inequities in access to power. 

Note for users: To find detailed information on applicability and use of each thinking routine included in the collection, be sure to click on the tab marked with a paperclip.
