Lessons Learned in Implementing Culturally Responsive Pedagogy in Teacher Education
Date & Time
Friday, March 31, 2023, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

The experiences of CUNY educators at Lehman College and Brooklyn College will be showcased, specifically in implementing culturally responsive and sustaining pedagogies. This will demonstrate their commitment to creating a teaching environment and curriculum that are antiracist, culturally responsive, and culturally sustaining. The development and implementation of a teacher preparation curriculum in which the identities of students of color are valued and affirmed and which prepare all teacher candidates to ensure the academic success of P-12 students of color and how this would increase access to educational opportunities for students of color will reinforce pedagogical concepts. Such new models for teacher preparation programs may benefit the entire CUNY community. Lehman College faculty will offer an interactive session framed by their own classroom stories that reflect on the hits and miss, such as when a teacher has to juggle multiple angles of diversity, including graduate-undergraduate mixing, differences in academic levels, racial/cultural diversity, and socio-economic disparities. Brooklyn College faculty will feature their process of analysis and assessment that redesigned the undergraduate program in Childhood Education.
