MINNESOTA HUMANITIES CENTER
February 23, 2011
I attended the program called Revolutionary Leadership at the MN Humanities Center. To prepare for the two day seminar I took an online class called "The Absent Narrative." As a member of our school's leadership team I felt this was a good opportunity to look at new ways to approach the way we teach students from diverse backgrounds. Part of our school improvement plan is to help all teachers be culturally responsive in their practice and this program at the Humanities Center provided resources and information to begin to achieve this goal. I've already used some of the resources provided and our staff is discussing ways to continue to look at our curriculum so that our students can see themselves in the content. This was an excellent program and I would highly recommend it to any school looking to provide a more culturally relevant as well as culturally responsive curriculum.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The work I do as Instructional Coach/ IB coordinator for an elementary school.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
expand it's reach and provide even more opportunities for educators to participate.
