What is Cultural Linguistic Responsiveness?

Focusing on values over rules helps to strengthen a community. Often, children perceive rules as them being told what to do. Values on the other hand, can be created together by all members of a unit. Discussing values allows everyone to feel more ownership and is a great way to make a family connection stronger.
Here is an example of this activity. The photos (photos below) shows a poster created by students in a 5th grade classroom. To start this process, students wrote 3 words they value most and explained why they did. After, students shared their choices with the class while the teacher tallied their responses. The teacher created a large sign and all students signed it to show their agreement.
A similar process can happen at home to help everyone understand what is important to all family members. Here is a form that can be helpful in beginning this activity.
These are values that are brainstormed by students in our District-- students go through a creative process where they identify their values, and other students can add on or "upvote" shared values.

Through this process students can identify shared values, and teachers and staff can validate, affirm, build, and bridge (VABB) cultural behaviors and values.
