Culturally Relevant and Responsive Teaching!
Are you part of a team that is examining your curriculum for opportunities to be culturally relevant, responsive and sustaining?
Culturally Relevant, Responsive, and Sustaining Teaching (CRT) is instruction that values the life experiences and cultures of all students. "Recognizing the culture of all students builds bridges to deeper understanding."
Join other educators across NC to build the capacity of your team and your resources by participating in Professional Learning on CRT as part of the #GoOpenNC platform. Participants are encouraged to register and participate with a group of 3-6 educators in their school or district within a common content area or grade level.
Register HERE - registration is open through February 22.
Participants are eligible to earn 1.2 CEUs in Digital Learning and 1.0 CEUs in Content Area.

Digital Learning Day is February 25th!!
This year we want to celebrate ALL the digital learning occurring in our classrooms while we share and learn from one another.
We are offering 0.1 CEU credits in CONTENT to participants who share, through Social Media, an engaging and/or interactive digital activity you have implemented with your students. Include a picture, a brief description of the activity, the content area you teach (for content credit) and, if applicable, a link to any resource you used. We want to use this opportunity to grow & learn from each other! Check out these DLD resources for ideas!
You must tag the district, your school and Digital learning Day on Twitter and/or Instagram to earn credit.
