Critically reflecting on materials during remote learning teacher reflection guide

This reflection tool contains reflection questions and considerations for critically reflecting on materials during remote learning. Research shows that culturally relevant and intellectually rich materials and resources have the potential to improve student learning. Culturally responsive and sustaining educators know that the materials and resources with which young people engage in school also have a profound impact on how they understand themselves and the world. Thus, educators who seek to be culturally responsive and sustaining critically reflect to ensure that the materials and resources they use with students are reflective and affirming of those students’ realities and experiences, support students in understanding different realities and experiences, and do not unintentionally send harmful messages about historically marginalized populations.
