Thriving School Psych Thriving Students

Culturally Responsive Teaching and SEL: A Coffee Chat with Zaretta Hammond


Have you heard of culturally responsive teaching? How about culturally responsive social-emotional learning (SEL?).

If you’re a school psych who is interested in leveling up your understanding, I have a treat for you!

In my latest episode of my YouTube Show, “Coffee Break School Psychology” I interviewed Zaretta Hammond, author of Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain to share  3 ways school psychs can advance equity through culturally responsive teaching and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL).


Grab a cuppa coffee and learn:

  1. How to build learning partnerships with students.
  2. The importance of “care and push” when it comes to helping students learn in their zones of development.
  3. How to shift student’s narratives about their learning capabilities beyond growth mindset/grit messages through error analysis.

As a bonus, she also provides three steps to getting started with building SEL and cultural responsiveness practices into the culture of the school.
