Why Racial Literacy & Strong Foundational Skills Are Essential to Equitable Education

In this final video in our three-part series, Zaretta Hammond, author of Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain, and Pivot Learning discuss the need for educators to develop their racial literacy to address inequities.

Zaretta shares the example of how low expectations and labeling foundational skills as low level has resulted in many Black and Brown students not receiving the supports they need to build their automaticity and information processing so they can accelerate their own learning.

We’d love to hear your thoughts about this video and if you have other ideas for supporting student success with culturally responsive teaching.  Email us or share on Twitter by tagging @PivotLearning.
