MSEA is pleased to bring the Culture, Abilities, Resilience and Effort (C.A.R.E.) Workshop series to our members this fall/winter. 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. Completion of each part of the workshop series makes certificated participants eligible to apply for one MSDE Continuing Professional Development credit applicable to re-certification requirements.
Please note: The C.A.R.E. series has three parts. Parts 1 and 2 do not require pre-requisites, and both must be completed prior to attending Part 3.
