Created specifically with teachers in mind, this website welcomes teachers and other individuals to explore interactive teaching modules that highlight the importance of collaborative learning, mentoring novice teachers, having an awareness of cultural competence, and providing Culturally Relevant Pedagogy (CRP) and Culturally Sustaining Pedagogy (CSP) practices for marginalized students.
Each module introduces corresponding definitions, videos, and classroom activities that teachers can use when working together and instructing their students.
The modules are approximately 45 minutes to one hour in length and engage visiting participants with additional links to resources and ideas ready to be utilized.
