Abstract

The research question addressed in this capstone is, how do I create a culturally responsive resource guide for middle school educators that promotes cultural awareness and builds a respectful learning community? The product of this capstone is an original teacher resource guide entitled, Creating a Respectful Community Through Cultural Awareness. Consisting of nine classroom lessons in PowerPoint format and a student reflection journal, the guide utilizes the knowledge and culture students bring to school in a standards and research-based curriculum. It is based on Minnesota state standards and research in the field of culturally responsive pedagogy. The development of this capstone was influenced by the author's personal desire to empower educators and students to develop cultural awareness and promote respect within the classroom community.
