Course description: With the increase of social justice issues being highlighted in the media across the country, the practice of cultural competency has become a crucial skill educators are encouraged to practice. Classrooms have become more diverse, creating a need for educators to be cognizant of different practices, beliefs, and needs of each individual student. A number of practices adopted by school districts across the country have been shown to contribute to creating inclusive environments for students from different cultural backgrounds.
This course will cover the subject of cultural competency, and why understanding this subject is crucial to better serve students. Participants will be guided through terminology, the policies and practices that contribute to cultural competency, and be given ideas on how to support student success and positive change in policies and practices of school districts.
