Culturally Responsive

Culturally responsive teaching refers to practices and approaches that support “culturally and linguistically diverse students who have been marginalized in schools build their skill and capacity to do rigorous work.” (Hammond, 2018). The term has been used more broadly to describe approaches that demonstrate awareness of and respect for the various social and cultural identities of students, that use students’ cultural references as a part of instruction and curriculum to empower and support deeper engagement and learning; that appreciate and honor diversity from a historically-grounded and strengths-focused lens; or otherwise build supportive and caring relationships across cultural backgrounds (Ladson-Billing, 2009).
