Creating Inclusive Classrooms and Schools for Hispanic/Latino Students: New Paradigms, Strategies, and Practices for Educational Achievement and Success

Many Hispanic/Latino students struggle with pressures to reclaim and to reaffirm their cultural heritage at the same time that they are being required to assimilate into the dominant educational culture in U.S. schools and colleges. To assist teachers and staff who are working with Hispanic/Latino students and their families, this workshop will examine misperceptions about Hispanic cultures and demographics, analyze the relationship between Hispanic/Latino cultural identity and educational achievement and success, and generate new paradigms, strategies, and practices to implement in your classrooms, your school, and your college.

This workshop is available in either a 3.5 hour format or a one-day format (9 a.m. to Noon; 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.)
