When you think about diversity; how does it show itself? When you stand before your students, do the faces looking back at you look like your own? Most likely your answer is “no”. Classrooms, and out-of-school time programs are becoming more culturally, ethnically, and linguistically diverse, which is leading to both, challenges and opportunities for educators. A big challenge is often students and educators do not have the same cultural, ethnic, or social background. How can you bridge this disconnect, and why does it matter? Join us to learn about research-based best practices on cultural responsiveness. A powerful approach that spans the cultural divide that often exists between educators and students and allows educators to improve STEM engagement and equity.
This webinar is part of a series of Research to Practice webinars, presented by NGCP and SciGirls.
