Get to know your students . . . Year One Staff learn about Culturally Responsive Teaching

Last week, our Year One professional staff examined the critical topic of Culturally Responsive Teaching. The EL Department trainers and coaches, Ms. Ameena Elder and Ms. Nadra Shami presented information and activities that introduced the staff to the challenges that our refugee students face on a daily basis. Time was spent in small group and whole group reflecting on how educators can best support our students that endure these hardships.  The presentation from this session is available on the Dearborn Teacher University tab under “PD Presentations.”

As a reminder, be sure to register for our next Dearborn Teacher University Year One PD on November 27, 2018. The topic will be Assessment with two sessions available. High School Year One staff will meet at 2:45-4:00 for SAT/PSAT and our K-8 session will focus upon NWEA from 4:10-5:25.  Both workshops will meet in the board room at ASC.
