Culturally Relevant Education
Knight and Marciano (2013) outlined three tenets of culturally relevant education. In 4-5 well-written paragraphs, address the following questions in your post based on your current profession and organizational affiliation:
- How would you create culturally relevant opportunities for students of color to engage in the college access process?
- What social, academic, and cultural factors influence understanding of the college-going process for students of color, low-income students, and first-generation students?
- Imagine that you have a student/colleague who has not thought about college or career advancement. Provide at least two strategies that will demonstrate your cultural empathy and perspectives on college/career readiness.
Support your statements with evidence from the required studies and your research. Cite and reference your sources in APA style.
