This virtual workshop, led by Ms. Nancy King Wang, will introduce Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education Framework (the CR-S framework), designed to support various school stakeholders to address structural inequities deeply rooted in American history, culture and institutions. Introduced by New York State Education Department in 2018, the CR-S framework is to help educators create student-centered learning environments that:
- Affirm racial, linguistic and cultural identities;
- Prepare students for rigor and independent learning, develop student’ abilities to connect across lines of difference;
- Elevate historically marginalized voices; and
- Empower students as agents of social change.
Under the current circumstance of rising anti-Asian hate crimes, the CR-S framework is of particular importance in cultivating a safe and positive school environment for all and providing critical tools to K-12 teachers to achieve such goals.
This virtual workshop (via ZOOM) is presented by Confucius Institute at China Institute in collaboration with the New York University Project Developing Chinese Language Teachers (DCLT) and the NYS Statewide Language Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network (RBE-RN) at NYU.
2 hours of CTLE credits are offered for New York State teachers.
