    Presentation by Dr. Gloria Swindler Boutte (University of South Carolina)

    This presentation will describe strategies that teachers can use to recognize, and build on the strengths
    and resources of the cultures and communities in which they teach. Relating the ethos of the
    barbershop and hair salon in the Black community to tenets of culturally relevant pedagogy, aspects of
    both that support empowerment and socialization are made explicit. Implications are drawn for how
    teachers can develop an inside understanding of students’ communities and illuminate existing best
    practices that differ from mainstream conceptions.
