Culturally responsive education: 06M513 resource packet

This packet, created by Castle Bridge, contains documents and resources that outline the three guiding principles (A Progressive Approach, A Fully Inclusive and Integrated Environment and Dual Language Instruction) upon which the school was built. Additionally, the packet outlines and documents the various ways in which Castle Bridge is working toward Culturally Responsive Education (CRE) in their school community. Included is a self-created, self-assessment done by the school, in which they looked deeply at their alignment to Zaretta Hammond’s “Ready for Rigor Framework”. They analyzed where they are currently, what resources have supported them in getting there, and where they need to grow. Also included are the various texts and professional development opportunities Castle Bridge has used to support their staff in implementing this three pronged approach to CRE.
