Culturally Responsive PracticesCulturally responsive practices account for and adapt to the broad diversity of race, language, and culture in Wisconsin schools and prepare all students for a multicultural world. Wisconsin Response to Intervention: A Guiding Document

Response to Intervention (RtI)

Culturally Responsive Practices at the Center of Wisconsins Vision of RtIWhy Culturally Responsive Practices?Nationally, race has been a predictor of success in schools for decades.

Called the achievement gap, the opportunity gap, the equity gapall phrases speak to the long-standing educational inequities in our system. Both national data and Wisconsin state data show that in nearly every measurable areaacademic achievement, discipline, gifted and talented placement, and graduation ratesstudents of color have statistically significant lower rates of success as compared to their white peers.

Wisconsin Response to Intervention: A Guiding Document

Why Culturally Responsive Practices?Wisconsin students are increasingly diverse. Our curriculum, instruction, and supports must reflect this diversity and be intentionally inclusive of the many cultures in our communities. Culturally responsive practices make a difference. In Wisconsin, school districts have changed race-based patterns of success and failure through attention and intention. Third, RtI is a systems change model. Need to reflect on:-Who is successfulwho is not (academics & behavior)-Monitor success of interventionsand challenges-Interventions/practices that succeed with subgroups of students

How Do You Become a More Equitable Educator?EdChange

On color-blindness:As painful as it may be to admit, I know that I react differently when Im in a room full of people to share many dimensions of my identity than when Im in a room full of people who are very different from me. I must be open and honest about that because those shifts inevitably inform the experiences of people in my classes..
