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




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 that educators and the 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 one MSDE Continuing Professional Development Credit.

Where: Virtual. Participants will use MSEA’s Professional Learning Portal to attend live, virtual sessions and to complete asynchronous assignments. Registration links for the Professional Learning Portal will be sent to registrants prior to the first session.

When: February 10 from 5-8 p.m. and February 11 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
