Description

This is Just the Beginning: Being Culturally Responsive

Learn from Bill Gates's "Hero in the Field" and evolve as a culturally responsive teacher. If you have a class bursting with vibrant and different cultures, this course is your guide to building a successful year for every student!

This is a tried-and-true workshop from 2018 National Teacher of the Year, newcomer educator Mandy Manning, broken down into (5) 30-60 minute long modules that you watch on your own time—alone or with your school team or faculty. Yes, it's okay to share the video with your colleagues and host your own PLC watch party!

Connections, compassion, empathy, and acceptance are foundational qualities for learning. This course will challenge participants to explore their own experiences and social groups and how they shape perceptions and impact classroom connections. We will explore the cross-section of awareness and knowledge with cultural responsiveness and how these elements affect building relationships with students. Finally, we will apply this knowledge to classroom practice.



These 5 modules include:

  • Exploration of what it really means to be culturally responsive, and how that is differentiated from social justice and equity work,
  • Methods for self-reflection,
  • Investigation of cultural clash and how that can interfere with student learning (and solutions to combat it!), and
  • Strategies to apply cultural responsive teaching in your own classroom or school.



About Mandy Manning:

Mandy Manning is the 2018 Washington and National Teacher of the Year. She has been an educator for twenty years and has been a Culturally Responsive Classroom Management Trainer for the Washington Education Association. Mandy teaches English and math to refugee and immigrant students in the Newcomer Center at Ferris High School in Spokane, Washington, where she is her students' first teacher once they arrive in the U.S.

Mandy began her career as a teacher in the Peace Corps in Armenia. She has also taught in Japan and in schools across the U.S. This global perspective infuses her classroom. Mandy uses experiential projects like map-making to help her students process trauma, celebrate their home countries and culture, and learn about their new community. Mandy has hosted more than 160 teaching candidates in the Newcomer Center. Many teach their first lesson in the Center. For others, the Center is their intercultural field experience. Mandy aims to expose as many future teachers, colleagues, and community members as possible to the diverse environment of the Center. District leaders, school board members, and legislators are regular visitors to her classroom.

As a National Board Certified Teacher, Mandy is an ambassador and mentor to her colleagues and is known for her collaborative style and determination to bring marginalized voices into decision-making. Mandy led a diverse committee in re-evaluating her school’s discipline plan and adopting an evidence-based behavioral intervention plan that enhanced academic and social behavior outcomes for all students. This effort resulted in a 74 percent decrease in suspensions in the first year.





In addition to the session with Mandy, each module also includes:

  • An essential question—how this will help you as a teacher;
  • What you will learn and take back to your classroom;
  • A one-pager with reflection questions and additional resources to share with your PLC, teacher team, or school.

The course will run from September 16-October 22, with a new module being posted each week. On week 6 you will get a chance to join a live 2-hour Q&A webinar with Mandy.*

Video recordings will be available up to two weeks after the Q&A webinar.

*There is an option to purchase only the recorded modules without the Q&A.
