Culturally and linguistically responsive and affirming Approaches that empower individuals intellectually, socially, emotionally, and politically by using cultural and historical referents to convey knowledge, to impart skills, and to change attitudes.

Such approaches involve consciously creating social interactions to help individuals meet the criteria of academic success, cultural competence, and critical consciousness and include creating individual-centered learning environments that affirm cultural identities; foster positive learning outcomes; develop children’s abilities to connect across lines of difference; elevate historically marginalized voices; empower children as agents of social change; and contribute to individual child engagement, learning, growth, and achievement through the cultivation of critical thinking.  These approaches challenge norms (e.g., expectations regarding language, behavior, social interactions) to be responsive to marginalized children and families and work towards greater equity.

Play A distinct developmental domain characterized by activities with objects and people that capture a child’s attention and interest as they experiment, try new ideas and roles, investigate laws of nature, and represent what they know about and are learning from ongoing events.   As a context for learning, play skills can be operationalized, predicted, and a focus of intervention and instruction with children’s learning goals embedded in indoor and outdoor play activities.
