Using Culturally Relevant Education as a Tool Against Systemic Racism

A Candid Discussion with Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings

As students return to in-person or virtual instruction, districts will need to decide how they will incorporate lessons learned that will dismantle systemic racism and change the way their students experience their schools.

Join EAB in a 1-hour webinar for a candid discussion with Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings about using Culturally Relevant Education to combat systemic racism and to contextualize the racial injustices brought to the forefront in summer 2020.

Culturally relevant teaching recognizes students’ diverse backgrounds, but how can district and school leaders use it to contextualize for students the U.S. socio-political issues and racial injustices brought to the forefront in summer 2020?

In our 1-hour webinar, EAB and Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings, pioneer of culturally relevant teaching and renowned education researcher, will discuss how to use culturally relevant education as a tool against systemic racism in the classroom. Learn how to rethink curricula to be inclusive of not just students’ cultures but community racial histories, the challenges of implementing culturally relevant teaching, and actionable strategies to immediately take away for fall 2020 and beyond.
