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.
