About the eBook

Engage diverse learners in your classroom with culturally responsive instruction!

How to Teach Students Who Don′t Look like You helps educators recognize the impact that culture has on the learning process. The term "diverse learners" encompasses a variety of student groups, including homeless children, migrant children, English language learners, children experiencing gender identity issues, children with learning disabilities, and children with special needs.

This revised second edition reflects the latest trends in education, and includes new coverage of standards-based, culturally responsive lesson planning and instruction, differentiated instruction, RTI, and the Common Core State Standards. Bonnie M. Davis helps all educators:

  • Tailor instruction to their own unique student population
  • Reflect on their own cultures and how this shapes their views of the world
  • Cultivate a deeper understanding of race and racism in the U.S.
  • Create culturally responsive instruction
  • Understand culture and how it affects learning

How to Teach Students Who Don′t Look like You provides crucial strategies to assist educators in addressing the needs of diverse learners and closing the achievement gap.

"This book ′fires up′ educators by speaking from the soul to reach the heart, from the research to engage the mind, and from the skillful hand to build the necessary expertise."
—Peggy Dickerson, Professional Service Provider
Region XIII Texas Education Service Center, Austin, TX

"The vignettes and classroom situations help the reader understand how race plays out in our society and in our classrooms. Dr. Davis takes on a very volatile topic and is able to engage the reader without offending. The examples, vignettes, cases, and stories will hook the readers just as they did me. Once I began reading the book, I could not put it down."
—Ava Maria Whittemore, Minority Achievement Coordinator
Frederick County Public Schools, MD
