WEEK 4 DISCUSSION 1 CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE SKILLS

Amatea (2013) suggests when teachers acquire culturally responsive skills for assessing parent engagement and facilitating parent participation, parents are more likely to become active within the school community (p. 145). Research your local school district. (Or use the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, CMS Fast Facts (Links to an external site.).)

Respond to the following:

  1. Summarize      all pertinent information that makes up the district; student ethnic      distribution, number of schools, percentage of economically disadvantaged      students, etc.
  2. Research      the community itself (Can be found on the district website)
  3. What      unique student characteristics did you discover in the data?

What unique resources might exist in the community that this school serves? List at least (2) and explain how these can enhance student learning and academic achievement. See full work and reading material attached.
