Culturally Relevant Making... During a Pandemic
Due to COVID-19, our partner schools and after school programs have been shut down. To address this challenge we have created a suite culturally relevant and personalized do-it-yourself projects to tap into students’ personal interests and cultures as part of our efforts to personalize learning. Our culturally relevant approach to making and STEAM supports student identity formation and affirmation, as well as student-teacher relationships, and a focus on and commitment to academic equity.
