DIVERSITY & RACIAL JUSTICE In response to recent protests and events led by students of color (SOC) across the nation CRT is a educational platform for tackling issues of race, such as the historic omission of SOC in higher education & public education; countering public schools' "Banking Concept" of teaching as addressed by Paulo Freire in his book Pedagogy of the Oppressed; identifying and improving school climates that often include racial micro and macroagressions; and a lack of Ethnic Studies curriculum which has been proven to increase the recruitment, retention and mental health of minoritized SOC. CRT TEACHER RESOURCES CRT will provide teachers resources in various research-based best practices in culturally, socially, and historically responsive/sustainable/empowering pedagogical advancements that are highly effective with traditionally marginalized and underserved SOC populations, specifically with and for Xican@/Latin@ youth. These resources are for teachers at the K-5, 6-8, 9-12 levels in the areas of English/language arts and History/social science. These teacher resources and pedagogy approaches consist of: 1) overall pedagogical frameworks that can be implemented in the classroom. 2) pedagogy application that work with specific curriculum units. 3) pedagogy application that are specific to particular lessons. CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT CRT will develop academically rigorous Common CORE and state aligned curriculum units that are culturally, socially, and historically responsive in the areas of English/language arts and History/social studies. Finally, a Curricular Scope and Sequence framework for English/language arts and/or History/social science can be developed. This Curricular Scope and Sequence provides the school district/instructors with a curricular guide wherein educators can implement the individual curriculum units within the larger curricular framework.
