Cultural Responsive Pedagogy
The Educational Equity Partnership Project (EEPP) is a multi-faceted partnership, with a purpose to enhance and support culturally responsive pedagogy and equitable practices among educators by providing skills and tools to combat the complex socioeconomic and cultural issues facing students in underperforming schools.
The EEPP is an outcome of the collaboration between the School Board of Broward County Department of Coaching and Induction, and Florida Atlantic University’s (FAU) Department of Curriculum and Instruction (CCEI) and the Division of Student Affairs.
The overarching principle of the EEPP is to engage in a professionally meaningful academic collaboration between CCEI and SBBC to learn with and from one another as we re-commit to addressing the pressing issues of educational inequity that we experience in policy, curriculum, attitude and practice.
Goals are to Provide:
- Five Modules of Learning: in an interactive cohort of Master Teachers with topic including culturally responsive pedagogy, developing multicultural curriculum, equity in schools and society, parental inclusion and community engagement, and leadership and advocacy in diverse communities.
- Job-Embedded Support: through Culturally Responsive Master Teachers to facilitate support to translate how this knowledge can be applied to classroom practice, thereby reducing the learning and achievement gap, and prepare students to excel academically and in life.
The EEPP is a tailored professional pathway which incorporates five 6-8 week modules led by highly qualified, experienced instructors and scholars in the fields of multicultural educator preparation and curriculum development.
The EEPP is a specially designed first-of-its-kind Broward County Public Schools Cultural Diversity Credential Program, where educators will gain an in-depth understanding of the research base pertaining to culturally responsive pedagogy.
