Culturally Responsive Teaching: A Tech Unit with "The Wiz"
Recorded On: 03/14/2023
Join Equity Stage Manager and Theatre Educator Cheryl J. Williams as she shares the results of a pilot in rural America introducing culturally responsive teaching in tech theatre through a deep dive into the 1978 Sidney Lumet film "The Wiz".
When we as teachers think about culture and diversity, we often automatically think about our black students. However, a lot of teachers, whose students are all white struggle with how culturally relevant teaching strategies apply to them. This webinar is a resource you can use to bring culturally responsive teaching into your classroom, curriculum and productions. Now is the time to broaden our perspectives beyond one's own world, and this informative webinar will show you how it is done.
