WoLakota Project: Where Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Meet

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Session Description: Participants will be given an overview of the work done by the WoLakota Project team in both South and North Dakota over the last six years. We will explore both resource websites: www.wolakotaproject.org & www.teachingsofourelders.org and engage in both small group and whole group circle conversations around Native Elder interviews from both states. Participants will explore the connections between Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) frameworks and how, together, these guidlines can increase learning for students of all backgrounds. The WoLakota team will provide links to websites and resources that are open and free for all to use.

Session Outcomes: Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to:
1. identify key elements of Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT)
2. identify the connections between CRT and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) guidlines and better design instruction to address both
3. begin the process of reconfiguring instructional approaches around both CRT and UDL guidelines in order to meet the learning needs of their own diverse communities
