CRT Practice Area #3: Building Intellective Capacity
Culturally Responsive Teaching & the Brain, Chapter 8 -- CIT Mentor Task for April 23rd Mentor Forum
After reading Hammond’s description in Chapter 8 of “information processing” (input, elaboration, and application) and of some strategies for building “intellective capacity,” look for opportunities in your own work with students, and/or your Interns’ work with students, to embed FOUR or more of these “culturally responsive techniques.” Record how each of these techniques worked in your (or your Intern’s) classroom/work location. What did you observe that demonstrated active student information processing? If effective, why?
