Culture, Diversity, and Outreach Team
Working Together to Make Our Schools Culturally Relevant & Welcoming for Everyone
Culturally Relevant Teaching Involves the Following Objectives:
- Understanding and celebrating the value of human diversity because everyone has culture.
- Offering, but not requiring trainings for all educators so that they can structure learning environments which are welcoming, kind, and respectful for all students.
- Understanding that language and culture are intertwined. When you interact with a person who speaks another language, you are also interacting with their culture.
- Being kind to others.
Presentations to Students Involve:
- Helping students be aware of their own culture.
- Not judging someone before taking time to learn something about them.
- Helping students understand what they can do to be leaders in their community.
- Understanding that we are all a part of the human race.
- Recognize how to include others and avoid bullying.
- Giraffe Club Materials
