- 2 PM Anne Fox Blogging for cultural responsiveness I will be exploring what culturally responsive teaching (CRT) is and why we need to address the issue in our classrooms (from K12 to adult). Find out what CRT requires of the teacher and a few of the practical approaches you can take starting tomorrow. I will end by looking at a few strategies to make you better at implementing CRT in the classroom and where blogging could fit into that. I intend this to be an interactive session with your input throughout. http://annefox.eu http://www.absolutely-intercultural.com/?page_id=3140 I am British and French and have lived in Denmark since 1993. When I moved I changed from being a business studies teacher to a teacher of English and this quickly led to exploring the effect of intercultural differences and the application of technology in communication. In 2006 I started producing and co-hosting the Absolutely Intercultural podcast about all things intercultural. Right now I am in the process of updating, adapting and revising a training that I helped develop in a European project that ended in 2006. One aspect of this is that I am aiming to make more aspects of culturally responsive teaching (CRT) visible through blogging. My target group is teachers in adult education where there is a growing need for understanding of CRT because of economic and emergency migration but I am mindful of the fact that most of the work being done on CRT is based on K12 education so this means that I am constantly ‘translating’ and working out how transferable, if at all, K12 advice is for the adult ed classroom. I welcome teachers from all target groups in my FBF session.
