This month we’re sharing posts about the Mastery Collaborative community's explorations at intersections of culturally responsive education and mastery- based teaching and learning. This year, 141 teachers and administrators from MC member schools attended anti-racism trainings facilitated by Border Crossers, an organization that educates educators about race and racism.
We ask educators at our trainings to problematize traditional education in these three realms: grading practices, facilitation, and curriculum—and to bring their knowledge of race, racism, and cultural responsiveness to bear on reaching for more equitable practices.
Here are ideas from our community about how to make curriculum more responsive to and empowering for students. Have suggestions or questions? Drop us a line: firstname.lastname@example.org.
