Culturally Responsive Strategies for Building Relationships with Families: Part 2

This webinar will focus on the implementation of and deeper dive into culturally responsive pedagogy in the educational environment.

When working with students and families, it is vital that we are aware of our own biases and predetermined ideas about families and students. Particularly families and students that are the most marginalized by race, ability, language, gender, socio-economic status, etc.

We will share the benefits of fostering a culturally responsive community, using students and families as a basis for learning, and the significance of honoring and recognizing cultural beliefs. This can be done by creating authentic relationships through communication & listening, understanding families' unique perspectives, acknowledging similarities and differences, and validating families' experiences. 

We will also discuss communication techniques and utilizing resources in one's community.
