Close the achievement gap by closing the culture gap

Teaching children from diverse backgrounds begins with simple questions: What is my culture? What are my students′ cultures? How does culture affect how I teach and how my students learn? Can I learn to value and honor the unique experiences and cultures of my students? These are essential questions for educators with a sincere desire to help all students succeed. This comprehensive guide provides detailed examples that show why and how to create culturally responsive, standards-based (CRSB) instruction in the classroom, schoolwide, and at the district level. Results of effective programs include:

  • Increased academic success for all learners
  • Engaged and motivated students
  • Development of critical thinking skills necessary for higher learning
  • Strengthened partnerships between students, families, and communities

This new edition is enhanced with nationwide examples, up-to-date resources, and tools that can be implemented immediately. Principals, administrators, K–12 teachers, curriculum and staff developers, and college instructors will find this handbook a valuable and powerful tool for promoting student engagement and improving struggling schools.
