Culturally Responsive Literacy

Culturally responsive literacy models examine not only the methods of teaching students to engage with and learn from multiple texts, but also consider the many purposes for which individuals become literate. This module examines the purposes of literacy in students? lives, methods of designing and implementing culturally responsive literacy instruction, and the use of many forms of literacy as powerful tools for student engagement in school and social change. Participants are guided through information and activities that question how literacy is used applied to students? lives, as well as how culturally responsive literacy instruction can address achievement gaps for students who are culturally and linguistically diverse and/or students with disabilities.
