Primary Source Awarded Cabot Family Charitable Trust Grant to Enhance Cultural Proficiency Offerings

22 January 2014

We are thrilled to have been awarded a generous grant from the Cabot Family Charitable Trust to address diversity in Massachusetts' schools and are excited about the opportunities it will offer teachers. The grant program, Professional Development for Culturally-Proficient Practice: An Initiative to Address the “New Diversity” in Our Schools, will serve K-12 teachers in the metro Boston area and will help teachers across the state meet RETELL (Rethinking Equity and Teaching for English Language Learners) requirements through school-year seminars, summer institutes, and online training modules and resources.

Our three-day graduate-level seminar entitled The Caribbean, Central America, and the U.S.: Connections Past & Present is the first professional development opportunity funded as a result of this grant, and it focuses on understanding Latin America's diversity. This dynamic course explores the Caribbean Basin region, an area of origin for many of Massachusetts's immigrant families. Teachers will delve into the region's history, culture, and politics, and they will develop tools and knowledge to support culturally responsive teaching.

Stay tuned as additional programs roll out during the summer and fall of 2014.
