Culturally-responsive education (CRE) is an approach that combines pedagogy, curricula, theories, attitudes, methods, and instructional materials that engage students’ cultures and identities. The approach has emerged as a leading strategy in increasing student attendance, attitudes, and engagement towards learning. This session will guide arts partners and teaching artists in understanding how to evaluate the cultural responsiveness of arts curricula. Additionally, utilizing tools and resources mined from across the arts education field, participants will engage in assessing the extent to which their own curriculum is culturally responsive while learning new strategies for strengthening current pedagogy.
NOTE: Registration for this Institute will open on December 13, 2019.
