Episode 92 | Culturally Sustaining Pedagogy w/ Lorena Germán

Season #2

In this episode, titled "Culturally Sustaining Pedagogy," Lorena Germán is back to unpack the rich and necessary concept of CSP, as formulated by Dr. Django Paris and Dr. Samy Alim. We'll explore what it means to move beyond culturally relevant teaching to a model that not only acknowledges but also actively supports the cultural and linguistic diversity of students.

Together, we will discuss practical ways to apply CSP in the classroom, strategies to support educators in this journey, and how schools can institutionalize these practices to ensure lasting and meaningful change. We're standing on business—taking an unwavering stance in advocating for an education that supports positive social transformation and continuous student empowerment.
