Teaching in the 21st century requires educators to embrace multiple perspectives. This workshop will be focused around the four R’s of Culturally Relevant Pedagogy (through the lens of music teaching and learning):

Created by Dr. Gloria Ladson Billing, the 4 R’s create heightened engagement in the classroom. Through active, hands-on learning, participants will learn teaching tools and strategies for building a culturally relevant learning environment in the music room.
