About this Session

In 2005, Dr. Tara J. Yasso coined the term “community cultural wealth.” Community cultural wealth is the shared knowledge, skills, experiences, behaviors, and values of people in a community that guide and influence their ways of being and knowing. Dr. Yosso says there are 6 types of cultural wealth: aspirational, linguistic, familial, social, navigational, and resistance.

Join us as we explore how educators can nurture each of these within the classroom community to create a space of belonging and acceptance for children and families.
