S9 Episode 4: Culturally Responsive Teaching with The Urban Connection Project
In today’s episode, we’re exploring culturally responsive teaching with Kristen and Justin Campbell, the founders of The Urban Connection Project.
Hosts Kathleen and Angelia welcome the Campbells to 3Ps in a Pod to share about their work with the organization they lead and its focus on culturally responsive teaching.
The Campbells share how their experiences growing up and then as classroom teachers led to their creation of The Urban Connection Project. They then detail how they understand culturally responsive teaching and the impact that can have for all Arizona students. This discussion includes talking about the importance of upholding students’ identities and the need for self-awareness to lead to cultural awareness.
Kathleen also shares about her personal experience as a teacher connected with The Urban Connection Project.
