Culturally Responsive Practices in Early Literacy
Culturally responsive teaching validates and affirms student’s identities by putting their customs, characteristics, experiences, and perspectives at the center of instruction. Research highlights that culturally responsive teaching allows students to feel more recognized, feel valued for their contributions, and eager to learn. Culturally responsive teaching means educators adapt their instructional methods to use strategies and language consistent with the values of their students’ identities – giving students, particularly from historically marginalized communities, a more equitable and enriching education experience. Culturally responsive and literacy-rich classrooms will often feature books by diverse authors that depict diverse characters that challenge stereotypes and center the experiences that mirror those of the students in the classroom. Join us for a discussion on the impacts of culturally responsive instruction, challenges to implementation, and national best practices.
