Aveson Global Leadership Academy’s Cultural and Diversity Celebration
What an amazing Cultural Celebration Aveson Global Leadership Academy recently. Aveson community shared a sampling of cultural food and traditions and were treated with student and staff poetry and music presentations that expressed the stories of immigrants and people of color. Schools that engage in culturally responsive practices create an environment that acknowledges and embraces students’ cultural referents and funds of knowledge, hold high expectations for all students and use an asset-based mindset when engaging with students. This environment also gives students agency and voice as well as fosters critical thinking and self-reflection.
