​Raising the Odds of Success through Culturally Responsive Teaching

​How can we serve you?

​​The Urban Connection project uses this visual to represent the four categories in which our work lives in order to develop educators into becoming more Culturally Responsive.  This is an important model for educators of all students, but specifically for urban schools because of the unique needs, as well as the disparities that exist in many of these schools. Because our serviced communities are always evolving, it is important to understand that there isn't an arriving point in regards to Culturally Responsive Teaching, but rather a cycle of development within each of these categories that must occur on a regular basis. 

We offer a School-wide Needs AssessmentsProfessional DevelopmentNew Teacher or Cohort Mentorship, as well as Published Products to assist us in developing our partnering schools, school districts or college of education programs into Culturally Responsive Educators.  We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to development, so a specific plan is developed for each partner in order to maximize the growth of the educators that we work with. Contact us to learn more about our model and see how we can partner with you to raise the odds of success for the students you service!
