Abstract and Carmen ‘s Bio Becoming a Culturally-Responsive Educator in Challenging Times

The presentation will be an awareness-raising session that will explore what it entails to be a culturally-responsive teacher /educator (Garcia, 2002). It pursues three objectives. First, educators will experience four culturally responsive activities that can be used during preparation sessions. Second, the rationale on being a culturally responsive educator will be examined so that educators understand the need to incorporate their educatees’ cultural background during educating sessions. Third, educators will be encouraged to reflect on the fact that educatees need to know not only the techniques to deliver a meaningful class, the rationale behind these techniques, the knowledge about the language, as Garcia (2008) puts it, but also that educatees need to become aware of the role that the cultural component plays in learning/ teaching an additional language. The first three elements appear to be explicitly addressed in preparation sessions, but the last one does not. The learning/teaching/educating process can be enhanced if the cultural component is incorporated during learning/educating sessions.
