(Minneapolis, MN) - As Minnesota and other states’ educators prepare for potential new cultural competency standards, Culturally Responsive Minds launches a comprehensive product that will enable schools to teach and train on equity topics. Founders of Culturally Responsive Minds, Jennifer Terry and Deanna Wuotila, bring their dream of practical equity resources to fruition on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 4:30 pm with a product launch event at the Day Block Event Center. As teachers themselves, founders Terry and Wuotila realized the need for resources on topics of equity. The Education Subscription from Culturally Responsive Minds is one of the first comprehensive equity resources available to schools all over the country. With a growing need for equity resources, and the potential changes with cultural competency standards, Culturally Responsive Minds has schools covered with this in-depth subscription. Terry talks about her excitement for this unique product and why it’s so important for schools, “Culturally Responsive Minds was created in response to teachers' requests for curriculum pieces which will help support equity conversations in the classroom. This subscription has short, easy to follow lessons and games that are designed with today's classroom in mind. In addition to hundreds of lessons for teachers to use in the classroom, the subscription also includes professional development lessons designed to meet cultural competency standards for staff. Culturally Responsive Minds' mission is to provide an all-inclusive site that supports the entire school in meeting the ever changing needs of our students”.
In addition to her work as CEO at Culturally Responsive Minds, Terry serves as an instructional coach for the Center for Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning (CCRTL). Her work with CCRTL includes the development and implementation of the Summer Institutes for teachers and school leaders. At the launch event, there will be a presentation from the founders Terry and Wuotila, and a special message from Dr. Sharroky Hollie, Executive Director of CCRTL. Press, educators, investors and guests will able to test out the site to experience for themselves why this subscription is essential for supporting school and staff cultural competency needs. The Culturally Responsive Minds’ Education Subscription will be available for schools in the U.S. to purchase starting on Thursday, June 14, 2018 on culturallyresponsiveminds.com.
