Culturally responsive caring: Stop saviorism and put care in action!
Caring for students is a critical element of a culturally responsive and sustaining teacher’s practice in every learning context. Feeling cared for, and caring deeply for others, has a large impact on the ways that students and teachers experience a learning environment. It is important for educators to reflect on the ways that we are caring for students, how students experience care, and how enacting culturally responsive caring can lead to a more welcoming and affirming learning environment. The ideas, practices, and actions outlined in this resource are designed to be relevant to in-person instructional contexts.
This three-part professional learning resource is designed to support educators in exploring:
- What does it mean to care FOR students?
- How can we move towards culturally responsive caring in our teaching practice?
- What actions will we take to better enact culturally responsive caring for our students?
Each part of this resource contains activities that teachers can engage in individually or with colleagues, in either virtual or in-person settings.
