Zaretta Hammond’s 2015 Culturally Responsive Teaching & the Brain offers powerful insights about how brain science and culturally responsive teaching are essential in creating safe, welcoming, academically rigorous classrooms, which describes the EL classroom. In this masterclass, we’ll explore Hammond’s claims and discuss how her ideas about the brain and culturally responsive teaching align with - and enhance - EL Core Practices. Together, we’ll do a crosswalk between Core Practices, brain science, and culturally responsive teaching. Participants will leave with strategies to apply this learning in their schools and classrooms.
