Integrating fun games, lessons, and culturally responsive teaching strategies helped teachers build students’ English language arts skills over the winter break. Culturally responsive teaching strategies is an example of how our district is implementing our core value of diversity, equity, and inclusion into our everyday work with students. Teachers such as Latrice O’Gilvie engaged with the LEAP Academy students to help them build active listening skills, work on English language arts concepts, and expand their vocabulary. “The purpose is always for them to learn, of course. But the second purpose is just really to make sure kids are more engaged in their learning,” O’Gilvie, a Larry G. Meeks Academy teacher who taught kids during the winter said.
