WNYTR & CUE Host Culturally-Responsive Teaching Workshop

Wil Green, director of the Center for Urban Education (CUE), hosted a Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education Framework (CRSE) workshop for students in the college’s Western New York Teacher Residency (WNYTR) program on November 15. This New York State initiative focuses on four major principles for educators to incorporate into their classroom practice: A welcoming and affirming classroom environment; high expectations and rigorous instruction; inclusive curriculum and assessment; and ongoing professional learning. Green has led several CRSE professional development sessions for local school districts, most recently at Allendale Elementary in the West Seneca Central School District. 

In addition to introducing CRSE and expected student outcomes, Green encouraged teacher residents to focus on practical applications for CRSE in their curriculum planning and relationship-building with students and their families.  

This event concluded a monthly series of learning and professional development opportunities for WNYTR students, which included a neighborhood walking tour and a racial healing circles workshop earlier in the semester. These WNYTR-sponsored events will resume in the spring.
