My Name Is Not Michael: Strategies for Promoting Cultural Responsiveness in Schools
Schulz, Lisa L.; Hurt, Kara; Lindo, Natalya
Journal of School Counseling, v12 n2 2014
With the changing cultural demographics in U.S. classrooms, school counselors must develop innovative approaches to promote culturally responsive school climates and organizational change. A vision is offered of systemic cultural responsiveness and culturally relevant teaching practices that nurture and engage all learners. The role of the school counselor in realizing such transformation is described. In this vision, the tenets of advocacy, consultation, collaboration, systemic change, and leadership identified in the ASCA National Model are recognized as the means by which the school counselor can indirectly promote student achievement. This article offers examples of intervention strategies designed to impact the school system, the teaching and learning process, and foster cultural responsiveness. Recommendations for advancing the role of the school counselor are shared.
