Will, Fill, Skill: Wisconsin's Model to Inform Culturally Responsive Practices

Tuesday, May 8, 2018

Wisconsin's Model for Culturally Responsive Practice explains that educational equity is built through experiences and actions representing will, fill, and skill.

  • "Will" helps us develop a desire to lead and engage in equity work by building self-awareness and our belief that all students will learn.
  • During "fill" we gain cultural knowledge about the communities we serve.
  • "Skill" is a time to apply our knowledge to transform our educational system for equity.

This challenge - which provides the foundation for all challenges - supports us in identifying actions that represent will, fill, and/or skill.
