Who are our students? New Professional Staff learn about Culturally Responsive Teaching

This past week, our Year One professional staff examined the critical topic of Culturally Responsive Teaching. The EL Department Language and Literacy/SIOP trainer, 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 October 29, 2019. The topic will be Understanding the School Improvement Process with two sessions available. High School Year One staff will meet at 2:40-3:45 and our K-8 session will meet from 4:00-5:00.  Both workshops will meet in the board room at ASC. The link for registration is available here:
