Educator Effectiveness

Culturally Responsive Teaching Video Library

The Culturally Responsive Teaching Video Library features exemplars of culturally responsive teaching by MA educators. The purpose of this video library is to elevate these educators' culturally responsive teaching practices, and support MA educators to continue building their capacity to provide a culturally responsive education to all students in the Commonwealth. To learn more about culturally responsive teaching, please visit the Culturally Responsive Teaching & Leading page.

These 10–35 minute videos were reviewed and selected by Massachusetts educators in partnership with The Teacher Collaborative and The Teachers' Lounge based on strengths in one or more areas on this rubric . The videos depict a range of content areas, grade levels, and teaching models from the 2020-2021 school year (remote, hybrid, and in-person).
