Thursday, July 17th, 2021—Over the past few years, Syracuse Academy of Science Deans Pamela Smith & Meghan Miller collaborated with SANY consultant, Patricia Schmidt, who researched and wrote a book which illustrates the power of culturally responsive teaching and learning as it becomes embedded in the New York State Education Curriculum. This book is called, Authentic Voices: Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning.
Over the years, educators, families, and community members contributed to this unique program with the goal of enhancing learning environments by applying the languages and cultures of their students in their classrooms. Strong, carefully attentive, school leadership encouraged culturally responsive teaching & learning with the belief that children in this urban, economically stressed area could demonstrate significant academic and social/emotional gains.
A CRTL Montage was created for this book. It includes classrooms, children, teachers, family, and community members. Teachers collected CRTL experiences and presented them to Producer, Dean Meghan Miller and Director, Designer, Dean Pamela Smith. They also received support for the montage from Instructor Allen Lauricella & Graduate Assistant Elizabeth Kenny, Syracuse University, Newhouse School.
Readers of this book will witness culturally responsive lessons, family interviews, and whole school events that honor languages and cultures represented in the school. Sample classrooms’ culturally responsive lessons tied to the curriculum, are presented. Additionally, qualitative and quantitative student academic and affective gains are analyzed. Moreover, this book clearly demonstrates the talents, vision, and compassionate care given to children and their families by exceptional educators.

Juneteenth is the commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States. The origins of the commemoration date back to June 19th, 1865, when enslaved African Americans in Galveston, Texas first heard that the Civil War had ended, and they were free. Juneteenth gets its name from a combination of June and nineteenth and is also known as Black Independence Day, Juneteenth Independence Day, and Emancipation Day.
Enjoy your long weekend, Atoms!
