Who is the Color CodED Community For?
The Color CodED community is for educators who are committed to equity in education and the implementation of culturally responsive and sustaining pedagogy into their learning environments.
Why You Should Join?
Color CodED is a community of educational professionals dedicated to creating equitable, engaging, and relevant, learning opportunities and experiences for students from marginalized communities.
We believe that Culturally Relevant Pedagogy is just "good teaching" and we are devoted to supporting educators in the implementation of CRT practices into their classrooms and schools. In this community, you will find resources, support, and the encouragement needed to transform your learning environment into a space that meets the diverse needs of all students. Content, Culture, Community Engagement, and Creativity fuels this network of teachers because these values are what every learner desires from their learning experiences. We don't just talk about equitable learning spaces. But, using research and proven strategies and best practices, we create equitable learning spaces and welcome you to create them with us!
