This session is brought to you in partnership with Raising a Reader.
What does it mean to be ‘culturally responsive’ and how do I include it in my work with families? This workshop will define what it means to be culturally responsive, including the investigation of family engagement practices and tools that acknowledge and appreciate the home cultures of all families. Children’s books will be investigated as an important tool to bridge the connection between educators and families. We will further explore how to select and build a library of books that represents the interest and diversity of the families. Finally, we will review Raising A Reader, a family engagement and early literacy program that has demonstrated positive results in changing family behaviors, as a case study for including cultural responsivity in your family engagement initiatives.
Participants will understand the importance of using culturally responsive children’s books as a tool to increase meaningful family engagement.
I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
