The district will be hosting a discussion of the book “Culturally Responsive Teaching and The Brain: Promoting Authentic Engagement and Rigor Among Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students” by Zaretta Hammond in the library at Beye School on Monday, April 23 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
During this event, participants will talk about the first part of the book, which focuses on building awareness and knowledge. They will also explore the following topics from the book:
- “Information on how one’s culture programs the brain to process data and affects learning relationships
- Ten ‘key moves’ to build students’ learner operating systems and prepare them to become independent learners
- Prompts for action and valuable self-reflection”
Participants will be responsible for bringing their own copy of the book to the discussion. We hope to see you at Beye on April 23
