About this Grantee

Ms. Simon leads a study group, which includes middle school teachers and university professors, on culturally relevant pedagogy. Participants develop action-research that explores how cultural situations influence student learning in and outside of the classroom. Focusing on language arts and science, group members conduct classroom observations and share their findings by creating a school website, hosting workshops, and writing a journal article.
