B13 – Culturally Responsive & Relevant Pedagogy and Catholic Social Teaching
Presenters: Peter Bagnall, Angela Hickey-Gillespie (PVNC), Luke Stocking (Development & Peace)
Description: Culturally Responsive and Relevant Pedagogy (CRRP) focuses on awareness of social identity, power and privilege. This to equity in school and classroom practices involves maintaining high academic expectations, building a cultural competence, and fostering a socio-critical consciousness in students. The principles of Catholic Social Teaching connect meaningfully with this pedagogy to promote inclusion; classroom-level, school-level and system-level examples and application will be highlighted through reflection on a multi-tiered collaborative inquiry at PVNC.
