This session highlighted teacher educator response to a year-long professional development effort to articulate and enact a shared institutional vision of culturally responsive and transformative differentiation across a teacher education program. Using critical sociocultural perspectives, teacher educators considered the role of relationships, community context, curriculum, and pedagogy focused on transforming injustices, affirming student identities, and creating a culture of recognition in the K-12 classroom. The faculty conversations, reflections, and course redesign artifacts of this effort to institutionalize differentiation practices responsive to multicultural, multilingual, and learning diverse urban students are showcased to identify patterns of implementation and persistent areas of challenge.
