About Module II
Module II introduces each participant to ten professional learning pursuits designed to embrace a new mindset connected to cultural relevancy while focusing on personal and professional growth. These ten pursuits will challenge the participants with new language and resources needed to foster an anti-racism approach to education with a focus on equity.
From Cultural Humility to Future Orientation, we believe these new approaches within the educational construct will enrich the lives of students, teachers, and parents. With a focus on equity, we begin to embrace a new way of thought that embraces all cultures and their differences while meeting students where they are.
