Culture in the Classroom Rubric

Culture in the Classroom: Standards, Indicators and Evidences for Evaluating Culturally Proficient Teaching was created for the purpose of self-reflections and continuous improvement by teachers, and for evaluation and feedback by evaluators.

Standard For Success has partnered with Southeast Regional Resource Center (SERRC) to bring the teacher evaluation framework aligned with research-based instructional models such as Marzano’s Art & Science of Teaching, and Danielson’s Framework for Teaching to develop indicators and evidences upon which teachers can be evaluated for culturally- responsive instruction.


Standard A

Culturally-responsive educators incorporate local ways of knowing and teaching in their work.

Standard B

Culturally-responsive educators use the local environment and community resources on a regular basis to link materials to the student’s everyday lives.

Standard C

Culturally-responsive educators participate in community events and activities in appropriate and supportive ways.

Standard D

Culturally-responsive educators work closely with parents to achieve a high level of complementary educational expectations between home and school.

Standard E

Culturally-responsive educators recognize the full educational potential of each student and provide the challenges necessary for them to achieve that potential.
