Capstone Project Title
Maggie Struck and Patty Born
The research question addressed in this project was, how can a culturally responsive framework be used to modify a social emotional curriculum so that it is linguistically and culturally relevant for middle school ELs? It documents one educators exploration of a variety of frameworks that could be used to enhance a social emotional curriculum, particularly when working with English Language Learners. Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Mutually Adaptive Learning Paradigm were two of the frameworks chosen to inform the creation of a tool to be used by educators as they plan, prepare and deliver a social emotional curriculum. The author documents an educator self-assessment guide, or tool, and uses related research to provide rationale. Implications and limitations are both highlighted in the project description. The findings suggest that CRT-SEL Instructors Guide offers an appealing resource for educators wishing to integrate culturally responsive teaching practices into their social emotional curriculum.
