CTQ-CO Culturally Responsive Teaching Project

Several teachers from CTQ-Colorado are undertaking a culturally responsive teaching project designed to better meet the needs of diverse learners and the educators who teach them. Each teacher is currently piloting a project in their school and will share those takeaways with teachers across the state and nation.

Teachers also wrote a series of blog posts and articles about the importance of culturally responsive teaching. Read more about their projects and writing below.
