Leveraging SIM™ in Culturally Relevant Teaching

1:00 - 2:15 PM
Regency D

Our students come to us with diverse backgrounds and strengths. In Culturally Relevant Teaching we leverage students’ diverse cultural knowledge, experiences, outlook, and performance styles to make learning more meaningful and thus, more effective for them. This approach requires a student-centered rather than teacher-centered model. In this session, deepen your understanding of Culturally Relevant Teaching, and explore how SIM can support a student-centered classroom where honoring the uniqueness of each student strengthens learning for all.
