The challenge of successfully teaching a diverse group of students has become a focus of today's urban schools. The achievement gap persists and educators continue to struggle with the low academic achievement of our African-American and Latino/Hispanic students. Current research shows that using Culturally Responsive Teaching pedagogy helps students of color become more academically successful. Educating teachers on how to create culturally responsive classrooms will help expand the academic success of our diverse student population and begin closing the achievement gap. A workshop will be developed addressing culturally responsive teaching strategies for the Vallejo Unified School district.
