An interactive and experiential workshop that explores culturally responsive teaching through telling our stories, engaging with the stories of students, problem solving real-life scenarios and exploring the difference between a culturally responsive approach versus cultural appropriation. As a group, we will engage with concepts such as othering, prejudice and unconscious bias by understanding the importance of being an ally. We will use intersectionality (the framework that explores the intersection between social divisions such as race, class, gender, sexuality, nation, language, ableism and ageism) as the foundation for our conversation, while learning practical tools about how to create safe and authentic spaces for dialogue.
