Northeast Georgia RESA’s Culturally Responsive Classrooms (CRC) initiative is back for 2016-17! The goal of this project is to decrease the achievement gap for Black males on Georgia Milestones through implementation of culturally responsive practices. Participating school teams will gather to reflect, plan, and take action this school year. New and returning school teams are encouraged to participate.
Our fall kickoff will take place at Northeast Georgia RESA on Thursday, October 20th, 2016 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Dr. Bettina Love, associate professor of educational theory and practice at the University of Georgia, is our featured presenter. Dr. Love is a dynamic speaker and respected scholar who is one of the field’s most esteemed educational researchers in the area of Hip Hop education. Among other accolades, last year she received the prestigious Nasir Jones fellowship at the W. E. B. Du Bois Research Center at Harvard University. We hope you will join us for this exciting event.
There is no cost to participate, but advanced registration is requested. Each participating school is asked to convene a core team of 4-6 members (e.g., administrator, teachers, counselor, instructional coach) to engage in the work this year. The fall kickoff meeting will give teams the opportunity to gather to reflect, interact with their colleagues from other participating schools, and work on an action plan.
To sign up or for more information about the initiative, please contact Dr. Kat Raczynski at email@example.com. Dr. Raczynski, director of Safe and Welcoming Schools at the University of Georgia, is taking over leadership of the project for 2016-17. We look forward to another great year with CRC!
