The CRRP Seminar Series

CUS Facilitator(s): Dr. Nicole West-Burns, Jeff Kugler

This past year, we continued our Seminar Series on Culturally Responsive and Relevant Pedagogy (CRRP). This is a professional opportunity for K-8 schoolteachers within the Toronto District School Board to come to OISE and engage in professional learning related to this topic. This year, four schools participated, resulting in twenty-four teachers in the seminar. Within the sessions, teachers had the opportunity to:

  • meet once a month for a half-day seminar at OISE to learn more about CRRP, as well as discuss its components and practical application
  • create an action project in their own school based on a need related to equity or social justice in education
  • build a community of support with other TDSB colleagues who are engaged in equity focused work
  • support the development of new equity-minded teachers by hosting an OISE Inner City Option teacher candidate for practicum blocks

This was the second year of this project. Funding was provided by The Paloma Foundation, and by Dr. Chris Spence, TDSB Director of Education.
