Presentation Abstract: Discover common cognitive structures/ learning styles used by students who come from marginalized groups. Connections will be presented between components of AVMR and these learning styles, such as communal learning, gamifying, call and response, and others. Recommendations will help participants recognize how to be mindful of culturally responsive teaching when choosing the correct structure for the correct student.
