MY QUEST TO UNDERSTAND CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE TEACHING - PART 1

Published: Mar 16 2021

I used to think that CRT was a bunch of teaching strategies. Similar to cooperative learning, these strategies would have specific directions for their implementation. And if I just learned these strategies and attached them to my educating machine, then I would be a culturally responsive teacher. And I could teach my teacher candidate students to attach these strategies to their future educating machines so they would all be culturally responsive teachers. And over time, the grand educating machine would spew forth well-educated students who all scored above average on standardized tests, and systemic racism would be cured.

Well … I was just a little right, but mostly wrong.
