Culturally Responsive and Sustaining Pedagogy: Revisiting Approaches to Multicultural and Diversity Education

In this workshop, we will examine and discuss the schooling experiences of students from diverse socio-economic, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds and the qualities of teachers, teaching, and schooling that foster their learning. We will critically examine our own assumptions and perceptions about sociocultural and linguistic identity and revisit classroom approaches to multicultural and diversity education that shape instructional practices and multicultural students’ experiences in public schools.
