Hilltop Educator Institute Presents:
Cultivating the Genius of Black Children
Tuesday, May 8th
Facilitated by Dr. Debra R. Sullivan
As our schools become more diverse, cultural responsiveness is an increasingly important skill for teacher efficacy and childrens success. Substantial research indicates that Black children have distinct, unique learning styles and preferences. When we create classroom environments that meet the learning needs of Black children, we create opportunities for them to excel through effective pedagogy, strategies and best practices. This is a great opportunity to increase your cultural intelligence, break down the disconnect between learning preferences and learning environments that must be bridged before the achievement gap can be closed, and develop closer relationships with Black parents and families.
Dr. Sullivan is the President of the Seattle Black Child Development Institute. The primary focus of her work is implementing appropriate learning environment for Black children and working families and communities to increase their advocacy for their children. She is the author of three books and served on the Governing Board of the National Association for the Education of Young Children as a Member-At-Large.
Washington STARS hours available - please bring your MERIT I.D. number.
