About Module I

Module I is designed to cultivate tangible skills connected to ten culturally relevant competencies, which have been developed by The Center for Black Educator Development. This module is an introduction to each competency and includes a formative self-assessment at the end of each episode, which provides the choice of remaining anonymous.

We’ve also included supporting content with multiple resources to dive deeper into the issues discussed within each episode. We believe the true value gained throughout the learning journey is connected to self-reflection and introspection leading to an anti-racism approach to liberating education.

Culturally relevant education is a comprehensive teaching approach that empowers all students intellectually, socially, emotionally, and politically by using cultural referents to impact knowledge, skills, and attitudes.”
Dr. Gloria Ladson-Billings
