Tale of Two Teachers
Tale of Two Teachers – Multicultural Critical Reflective Practice
A teacher’s life history influences the bias they bring to the classroom. Dr. Melissa Crum is an artist, education consultant and diversity practitioner who works with many educators in urban schools. She noticed that many teachers had challenges teaching and relating to students who did not share their same cultural background. So, she worked with a museum educator to create Multicultural Critical Reflective Practice, an arts-based professional development series that helps educators think about how they are thinking about their diverse students. Her personal story and professional practice work together to tell a creative, inspiring, and eye-opening message that everyone must hear.
