VABBing in a Virtual Setting:
Using Culturally Authentic Text in a Distance Learning Environment
Validating, Affirming, Building and Bridging (VABB) with our students has taken on a renewed importance. We know how important it is to ensure our students are reading and being read to, especially while they are away from school. One way to VABB virtually is to ensure that students have access to books that reflect and honor their cultural identities.
Grab your cup of coffee and join us for a virtual coffee chat to learn new ways to use your CLR skillset in a virtual setting, focusing on culturally responsive literature. We will model CLR protocols though a read aloud of culturally authentic text and share a process you can use to identify culturally authentic text.
