2010 Disney Teacher Summer Conference: 6/27-7/1/2010
A professional development conference for PreK-12 grade teachers, college professors, and administators led by national scholars who will address "Culturally Relevant Teaching Strategies and Diverse Learning Styles" focusing on cultural proficiency and cultural competence. Using brain based instructional strategies, workshops will explore how to create a classroom community that honors every voice.
In addition, the workshops will focus on culture and learning and its importance as well as considerations that teachers and school administrators can take into account as they meet the needs of a more diverse population.
Participants will use strategies to improve academic achievement across the disciplines. During the workshop participants will be able to identify the strategies modeled by the presenter, reflect onpon instructional practices, and practice culturally relevant teaching strategies to implement in their classrooms and schools so that they can continue their professional growth and development.
