Full course description
The Culturally & Linguistically Sustaining Instruction through My Name, My Identity course is for those educators looking to strengthen their personal and professional skills in building an inclusive classroom environment for students from culturally and linguistically different backgrounds.
This course highlights the importance of using an asset-based approach to teach the importance of names and self-identity that will strengthen teacher and student relationships. This course will guide you through the pedagogy and applications that engage your students so they understand the importance of name, self-identity, and the positive impact they can make on their learning community in a blended learning, distance-learning, or traditional face to face environment. Technology tools to support the pedagogy will also be introduced.
Your facilitators for this course are the coordinators in the School Climate and Instructional Services Department at the Santa Clara County Office of Education.
