Culture, Abilities, Resilience and Effort: Part 1, Culturally Responsive


Tentatively at the Maritime Conference Center in Linthicum Heights, MD


Based on the NEA C.A.R.E. (Culture, Abilities, Resilience, Effort) Curriculum and broken down into three separate workshops, C.A.R.E strategies prepare educators to implement research-based approaches that maximize the value that diverse groups of students bring with them to school.

In this C.A.R.E. module (Culturally Responsive) educators will explore how opportunity gaps fuel achievement gaps. Students from diverse backgrounds bring their varied cultural, racial, and socio-economic characteristics and experiences to school. Participants will explore the role educators and community stakeholders can play while identifying concrete strategies for increasing student engagement to create opportunities and valuable learning experiences for diverse learners.

This workshop is free to MSEA members and will allow the participants to earn 1 MSDE Continuing Professional Development Credit.

Please note: The C.A.R.E. series has three parts. Parts 1 and 2 must be completed prior to registering for Part 3.
