Monday April 26, 2021 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM
The use of culturally responsive literature while engaging in therapeutic support is an important way to establish rapport and connection with students of varying backgrounds and experiences. During this session, participants will be introduced to equity in student supports utilizing the framework of “Will, Fill, and Skill” (Wisconsin DPI, 2017). Additionally, the concept of “mirrors, windows, and sliding glass doors” (Bishop, 1990) will be explored.
