Six Ways to Know If You Are Culturally and Linguistically Responsive

With so much recent focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), it’s important that you are familiar with the phrase being culturally and linguistically responsive, and responsive in your mindset and skillset. In this thought-provoking session, Dr. Sharroky Hollie will introduce you to this teaching principle which focuses on the importance of including a student’s cultural references in all aspects of learning—and how it benefits all students including many who have been traditionally underserved in schools. Additionally, he’ll share how implementation of DEI can help students be academically successful.
