Cultural competence is key to improved student achievement
This book shows you how to provide professional development for teachers that deepens their cultural understanding. The authors provide activities to help educators translate new knowledge into action with activities that focus on the three inseparable insights required for developing teachers’ critical cultural competency:
- Understanding themselves
- Understanding their students
- Understanding their students’ families and communities
Readers have access to a companion website that contains reproducible resource lists and handouts as well as examples that can serve as models for some of the activities.
