Audience: K-12 Regular and Special Education/ENL Teachers, Paraprofessionals, Social Workers, Psychologist, and School Counselors

Dates: 10/13/2021 to 2/2/2022

This is a 6 full-day in person CR-S education training.

The sessions will be co-facilitated with 4 individuals from districts who have already been trained to build their competency and capacity in executing the Culturally Responsive Sustaining (CR-S) education training. The CR-SE co-facilitation team will co-facilitate the CR-S education content, in which an NYU Metro Center IESC associate will coach CR-SE co-facilitators before each upcoming session, co-present during the sessions, and observe district CR-SE trainers. After the session, feedback will be offered to the CR-SE co-facilitators. This session will to help educators shift deficit thinking mindsets, specifically focusing on how race, identity, power, and privilege create education barriers that have historically created educational inequities for marginalized children and families. The CR-S education series supports the development of educators' ability to use race and culture to improve educational outcomes (Howard, 2010) and supports educators' engagement in a process of self-transformation in order to ensure equitable outcomes for every student (Banks, 2007). In this session, we will explore how microaggression, stereotype threat, and risk and protective factors are central in considering the role that schools have in creating welcoming, affirming, and validating environments, inclusive curriculum and rigorous instruction that mitigate vulnerability.

Session 5 and 6 will focus on identifying CR-S education school and classroom practices, developing competency around using the CRE Toolkit (CRE Curriculum Audit, CR-SE problem solving teams, CR-SE classroom tool), and developing district/school level Guardians of Equity teams.
