Capstone Project Title
Minority groups of students are oftentimes expected to convert to the eurocentrism set up of education. However, the demographics of students in education continues to grow and evolve. Teachers are expected to keep up with this evolution of change, but aren’t necessarily provided with the correct resources. Due to this, educators are seeing reduced levels of engagement, particularly in African American students. This capstone is a professional development for staff showcasing some culturally responsive strategies created by Dr. Sharroky Hollie. These strategies can easily be placed into lessons in order to support the different rings of cultures within students, while also promoting increased levels of engagement within students. This capstone provides strategies to help answer the question: how culturally responsive small-group strategies can improve engagement in African-American students? Research shows how our African American students need different levels of support within the classroom, beginning with culturally responsive practices.
