Culturally Responsive Pedagogy is about daily practices that bring students’ cultures into instruction, valuing each student and what they bring, teaching them as people first in order to maximize their potential as students.

Katherine Brodeur, Kristina N. LaVenia, Christy Galletta Horner, and Tracy Huziak-Clark of Bowling Green State University present their study Interrupting the Pattern: Knowing Why and Respecting Who We TeachThis mixed methods study examined pre- and in-service teachers’ perceptions of Culturally Responsive Pedagogy (CRP) and self-efficacy. Both pre-service and in-service teachers participated in professional development. Dependent-samples t-tests revealed positive and statistically significant changes in participants’ CRP self-efficacy. Qualitative analyses demonstrated that participants worked to better understand their core values (know why they teach), identified a need to better understand their students (respect who they teach), and recognized high expectations for all students as a core principle of CRP.
