Sonoma Leadership Network: Culturally Responsive Teaching for Deeper Learning

During this professional development series, school teams will examine content and instruction through the lens of culturally responsive teaching and learning that builds studentsí capacity to engage in rigorous academic conversation and engage with rigorous content more effectively over so that it increases their ability to be critical readers and writers as called for in the Common Core State Standardís anchor standards.

Through a professional learning community structure and inquiry methods, teachers will get new information about culturally responsive teaching concepts and techniques. In addition, they will design lessons and share them using a modified lesson study model. Along with new information and design work, teams will also examine implementation issues that either make or break effective integration of culturally responsive teaching practices.
