New dates and times! All meetings will be virtual learning. Join us for professional learning and deep conversations around the book Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain by Zaretta Hammond. Convenient VIRTUAL monthly professional learning meetings after school on the first Wednesday of the month, starting November 4, 2020, from 3:45-5:00 pm. The first 10 people to register will receive a copy of the book at no cost (limit two books per district).


Have you always wanted to dig deeper into learning around culturally responsive teaching? What does it mean really? Culturally responsive teaching is not a practice, it is what informs our instructional practices so we can make better teaching choices for ALL of our students. Culturally responsive teaching promotes authentic engagement and rigor in the classroom. Join us and we connect this learning to our practices in the Social Studies classrooms.
