Culturally Responsive Instruction Observation Protocol

CCLD partnered with the Center for Culturally Relevant Pedagogy to develop a classroom observation tool to measure teachers’ use of culturally responsive literacy practices. The Culturally Responsive Instruction Observation Protocol measures teachers’ instruction along eight key pillars: assessment practices, teacher dispositions, classroom climate, planned curriculum activities, instructional discourse, family collaboration and involvement, instructional strategies/pedagogy, and sociocultural perspectives.
