Culturally Responsive Education 3-Day Design Studio with Dr. Adeyemi Stembridge

A cooperative learning experience supported by CSTP, OSPI, WASA and NEWESD 101

Tue, May 30 8:30 AM - Thu, June 1 2023 3:30 PM

Administered by NEWESD 101


  • Dr. Adeyemi Stembridge, PhD


The Culturally Responsive Education (CRE) Design Studio is a unique and intensive professional development experience in which individuals and teams receive coaching, facilitation and technical assistance from Dr. Adeyemi Stembridge, author of “Culturally Responsive Education in the Classroom.” Educators can expect to focus on issues that lie at the intersection of equity and pedagogy.

The Design Studio is based on the needs of educators and their students, and includes 18 hours of in person learning, coaching and technical assistance around the mental model that serves as the foundation for culturally responsive unit design. 

Event Notes

The studio is best suited to instructional coaches, content coordinators, mentor teachers, and others who directly support in-classroom learning: the studio will offer frameworks, mental models, and real-life experiences that will guide future lesson planning.  However, classroom teachers are welcome to attend: the design studio, at its core, is focused on student instruction and student experience.


Participants will engage deeply with Dr. Stembridge’s planning questions:

What do I want students to understand?

What do I want students to feel?

What are the targets for rigor?

What are the indicators for engagement?

What are the opportunities to be responsive?


Registered participants will be mailed a copy of “Culturally Responsive Education in the Classroom” approximately two weeks after enrollment, and are highly encouraged to join a Center for Strengthening the Teaching Profession (CSTP)  book study offered on five consecutive Tuesdays (between March 21 and April 18, each from 4:30pm-6:00pm) to prepare for the design studio.  The book study is offered at no cost, with up to 13.5 equity clock hours provided for full participation, but does require separate registration at
