Developing Cultural Competence - Equity Literacy for Addressing the Achievement Gap
This session offers the first module of the Texas Disproportionality Initiative, Developing Cultural Competence (DCC). In this module, you will learn about how racism, implicit bias, and stereotypes affect the student achievement gap in schools. The purpose of this session is to dispel the myths about student achievement with regard to a student’s living situation and family history, economic condition, or language(s) spoken. This training will set the foundation of high expectations for learning for the remainder of the literacy project.
