The Students’ Six:
Strategies for Culturally Relevant Teaching
At the heart of The Students’ Six strategies is the idea that students have a lot to teach teachers when it comes to addressing issues like race, racial justice, racial dynamics, and cultural sensitivity in the classroom. We’ve developed a process to help that teaching happen. It’s a process drawn from from research-based strategies that have been proven effective with students of color.
The Students’ Six is not a product or a resource in and of itself. Rather, it’s a process—a process built on facilitating open communication between students and teachers. The six strategies listed below grew out of one particular implementation of the process. Here’s a nice article from KQED’s Mind/Shift blog about how The Students’ Six process took shape in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
