Our resources provide ways to support educators and leaders with developing and implementing strategies that promote educational equity.
Our Building Equity in Your Teaching Practice tool is rooted in the research and theory of James Bank’s Multicultural Five Dimensions. The approach focuses on helping teachers develop lessons that connect students’ backgrounds and life experiences to the content while also fostering a culture of achievement. It also allows for the development of curriculum that is student-centered and provides opportunities for students to develop their own ideas and opinions while respecting the views and beliefs of others.

The Culturally Responsive Personalization framework illustrates four core principles to be used by educators to develop and strengthen culturally responsive teaching practices. It is grounded in the belief that reflecting on one's own identity is fundamental to understanding students’ cultural characteristics. Each principle creates a path for teachers to become culturally proficient; cultivate strong relationships with students; support students in constructing knowledge; and the ability to use and create culturally sensitive assessments.
