Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education Webinar Series

This collection of videos resulted from a webinar series that sought to elevate current and future work related to the New York State Culturally Responsive-Sustaining (CR-S) Education Framework through the sharing of stories of growth and change from schools and districts across the state. The New York State Education Department (NYSED) recognizes that implementation of the CR-S Education Framework is already happening across the state and sought to deepen our shared understanding of culturally responsive-sustaining education and related efforts by learning about these efforts in New York State schools, districts, and communities. This webinar series was developed through a coordinated effort among NYSED, the Region 2 Comprehensive Center, and the school and district teams that presented and shared their work.

How to use these videos in professional learning

This collection of videos presents the ways in which different schools and districts across the state of New York are leading initiatives and activities related to implementing culturally responsive-sustaining education. We invite you to review these as part of your own professional learning or in leading professional learning with others. As you view each presentation, we recommend that you think critically about connections to your school or district.

To prepare for using these videos as part of a professional learning event, we suggest that you view the video yourself and then consider how you will plan for the professional learning of others.  The Video Viewing Guide is available to help structure reflection and discussion. Encourage viewers to read the viewing questions before they watch the video(s) and keep them handy while viewing.  Consider when staff/teachers will view the video and if they should respond the viewing questions individually or use them to guide small-group or full-group discussions.
