CLRT Institute

Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Teaching (CLRT) Institute.

The Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Teaching (CLRT) institute was designed to support educators who serve migratory children and youth to develop deeper knowledge of the cultural and linguistic assets that migratory students bring, issues of inequity faced by migratory families, and effective, culturally relevant teaching practices useful for migratory students of all ages, including those who are learning English as an additional language and other linguistically diverse students.
