CRT or CRT? Unpacking Culturally Responsive Teaching and Critical Race Theory in 2022

An antiracist educator knows that culturally responsive teaching practices are essential for the education of all our students. At the same time, educators and school districts have been facing increasing amounts of scrutiny over whether or not Critical Race Theory is being taught in K-12 schools.

Participants in this 6-hour seminar will leave with tools and strategies for responding to questions about these terms when communicating with school and community members.
