A short introduction to Culturally Responsive Teaching


In this short and accessible video from Teaching Tolerance, education experts Jackie Jordan Irvine, Geneva Gay and Kris Gutierrez explain how to make culturally relevant pedagogy a reality in your classroom.  They describe how appreciating the richness and complexity of culture is a starting place for connecting with students and adopting a culturally responsive stance.  This includes exploring values, beliefs, and assumptions, to support a pedagogy that can build bridges with students' knowledge and backgrounds.
