Cultural Responsiveness

Research has shown that there is power in building positive relationships with students. Responsive practices and positive relationships can lead to decreases in behavior problems and improved performance. “Low-income students who have strong teacher-student relationships have higher academic achievement and more positive social-emotional outcomes than their peers who do not have a positive relationship with a teacher (Murray & Malmgren (2005).” Responsiveness does not require “adding something” to our already full plate. It only requires increased awareness of behavior in order to respond more effectively.


Here are few shareable, practical resources to help you jump-start your responsive practices:
