Nurture young children’s self-esteem and boost learning by integrating family culture with instruction!

 

Emphasizing how connecting instruction with children’s backgrounds increases learners’ confidence and fosters a supportive learning environment, this book helps teachers improve outcomes for diverse and low socioeconomic status (SES) students. Drawing on field-tested methods, the author merges cognition, language, and culture and presents lesson plans, classroom-based alternative assessment tools, and best practices to help readers:

  • Improve literacy through storytelling that reflects students’ lives
  • Collaborate with parents to increase student achievement
  • Correlate curriculum with TESOL standards for young children
  • Integrate academic standards across developmental levels
