Through the self-paced course, you learned to channel your passion for teaching through exploring ways to make education culturally responsive. You know how to take the attention, awareness, and the innate ability to make all youth feel welcome. Now you’ll build on that foundation.
I’m on board.
Excellent, welcome to the next step in reframing the conversation so all students see themselves reflected in the lessons. Here’s where you’ll build the skills to maintain culturally responsive and respectful learning environment.
Now the hard work.
You’ve got this. As we have through every step of this program, we’ll equip you to work with the most inquisitive minds. We’ll dig into the essentials of cultural humility and responsive practices, including terminology, implicit bias, and intersectionality, and explore what facilitating through cultural humility and responsiveness lens can look like.
Where to start, you ask?
Self-guided doesn’t mean we leave you hanging, we want you to be a part of the conversation as much as you do. So, we’ve included handy self-assessments throughout each course to ensure you become a master of information.
I’m in. What can I expect?
You’ve got this. As we have through every step of this program, we’ll equip you to work with the most inquisitive minds. In this five session, 10 hour virtual instructor-led training, we’ll dig deeper into theories, strategies, and skills as we explore teaching through a culturally responsive lens, including a practice and coaching session using the Advocates for Youth virtual classroom.
After this training you will have built the skills to:
- Apply a cultural humility and responsive lens in the learning environment
- Apply the Theory of Intersectionality in your facilitation to lift up all identities in the learning environment
- Strengthen your understanding of the youth you serve based on their cultural context and experiences
- Apply models to respond when you or a learner commit a microaggression
- Adapt lessons or curricula to be culturally responsive
