This framework outlines seven principles that can serve as a foundation for teacher training and professional development focused on equity. The framework was developed by Tanenbaum, an organization that works to combat religious discrimination and hate. It comes in both a two-page, and an in-depth format filled with strategies and suggestions. Some of the principles include:
- How to prevent prejudice
- How to teach curriculum to various students
- Choosing inclusive materials
Culturally responsive teaching is critical to the creation of student-centered learning environments. Educators can apply the framework to any classroom or lesson plan to increase equity and decrease exclusion. It can also be used with a group as the starting point for conversations or a springboard to more equitable teaching practices.
