Northeast Georgia RESA’s Culturally Responsive Classrooms (CRC) initiative was a success in 2016-17! The goal of this project, now in its third year, is to decrease the achievement gap for Black males on Georgia Milestones through implementation of culturally responsive practices. Participating school or district teams gathered to reflect, plan, and take action throughout the school year.  Teams participated in two large group collaborative events (fall kickoff, spring showcase) and worked within their school or district on an inquiry project.  Teams could also take advantage of personalized assistance from RESA staff with expertise in school climate throughout the year.

Throughout the year and across all CRC learning activities, participants were invited to:

❑    Examine the importance of positive relationships to foster learning.

❑    Reflect on what educators can do to make learning more relevant for students.

❑    Consider the benefits of soliciting student voice as decisions are made about what happens in school.
