Today’s classrooms are made up of culturally diverse learners, and it is important that teachers understand and recognize that diversity and help teach students to be respectful and tolerant of others in regards to race, ethnicity, gender, economic status, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, and other diversities. This toolkit contains webinars that explore culturally responsive pedagogy, the importance of being inclusive of all cultures, and critical practices that provide a more equitable environment for students. They also provide instructional strategies and anti-bias curricula that can help students develop a better acceptance of diversity, and include a discussion of the effects of poverty on education and how to counteract some of these effects. In addition, you will discover web tools and project suggestions that bring in cultural diversity, help to communicate with the parents and language learners, and that connect your classroom to other cultures around the world.

Very informative. Thanks.
Sherman Indian High School has the master of utilizing local resources for its cultural presentations. Lori Sisquoc is the schools museum curator and cultural leader. It is such a positive reinforcement of her long standing style. The material in Ms. Fuciarelli's webinar presents a forest of robust trees and flowers. Each root, trunk. and branch begs exploration and study. Thank you
