Answer these questions, 300 words (Each) and two resources (each) required.
1. To truly educate others about being culturally responsive, we must examine what we are actually looking for. First, identify the “Big Eight” Social Identifiers from the Independent School Diversity Network – What is Diversity? Webpage. Then describe the recently added cultural identifiers to the “Big Eight.” Explain how your school supports or does not support each of the social identifiers.
2. Before we can focus on culturally responsive pedagogy, you must evaluate your personal implicit biases. Complete the gender-career, age, disability, sexuality, and race portions of Harvard University’s Implicit Bias Test. Take each section separately and record your scores. Compose a reflective summary of your results for each test and determine the effect this might have on your professional teaching practice. Your reflective summary must include your personal feelings, thoughts, and connections with this week’s readings. It is not required that you share your actual scores; however, you are open to do so.
