ANC 2020 Speaker Sharroky HollieSix Ways to Know If You Are Culturally and Linguistically Responsive
Speaker(s): Dr. Sharroky Hollie
There is a buzzword phrase floating around the K-12 sector—being “culturally and linguistically responsive.” This teaching principle focuses on the importance of including a student’s cultural references in all aspects of learning—and benefits all students including many students who have been traditionally underserved in schools. With so much recent focus on diversity, inclusion and equity and how implementation of the three can help students be academically successful, are you embracing these concepts in your workplace? In this thought-provoking session, Dr. Sharroky Hollie will help you understand if you are truly culturally and linguistically responsive in your mindset and skillset.
