The research question addressed in this study was what components of a Karen language and culture toolkit for mainstream high school teachers and staff could impact their confidence and awareness of the needs of Karen students and improve teaching practices. The Karen population has increased in the United States and professional development and resources about this group are an area of need for teachers. This capstone provides research on the Karen, features of the Karen language, and features of the Karen culture. This capstone also includes research on teacher preparedness and professional development that then informed the creation of a Karen language and culture toolkit in both pamphlet form and website to be presented to staff and teachers.
