#20-Culturally Responsive Teaching
Social Identity and Social Power
This week I want to share an article, Social Identity and Social Power. It is one of many resources provided to us by the Culturally Responsive Teaching Committee at CSU Long Beach.
Since summer of 2020, I have actively participated in university committee work that is so very important–culturally relevant teaching. Our work represents a multi-disciplined, collaborative journey to understand cultural relevancy and develop useful and appropriate tools to help build the next generation of culturally-sensitive student teachers.
The fore-mentioned article was presented to us at the onset of our committee work. After reading and discussing the contents and implications at length, each member completed the Social Identify Profile at the end. The article was quite impactful and stirred up some very interesting conversations centered around personal perceptions, unique and shared experiences, and implications related to our social identify, social power and how it impacts our students.
I encourage you to read this short article and, after completing the social identify profile, share your personal reflections on the Jamboard. Think about how this article might impact the types of culturally relevant pedagogies you choose to create equity and access for all students.
Please take time to share this resource with a fellow colleague.
Stay healthy and safe!
