3/24/2022, Culturally Responsive STEM Education

Date: 3/24/2022 Time: 3:30-4:30 Location: internet Type: Webinar

Description

It has always been paramount for us to create classrooms that are culturally responsive, but the unfortunate truth is that many of us are just beginning in this journey to unpack bias and look at our curriculum and instructional practices through an anti-racist lens. Now more than ever, we need to intentionally create classroom environments that promote and practice equity, anti-racist pedagogy, and safe spaces for our students to grow and flourish. Today is that day–let’s jump in and learn what it looks like on a tactical level!
