Patwin Elementary School, Davis
North Davis Elementary School, Davis

This team of teachers plans to become globally competent educators through reflection, equity-based curriculum design, and culturally responsive teaching practices. The project includes educators from two elementary sites who will examine and supplement its history curriculum using an equity lens. In collaboration with the UC Davis History Project and California Global Education Project, the team will create a lesson database for teachers, focusing on multiculturalism, inquiry, literacy, and civic action. The team’s desired outcome is to develop teacher leaders who will continue to work with other teachers in designing multicultural history lessons that include culturally responsive pedagogy.
