Additional Book Details

Lead a Common Core implementation that closes achievement gaps!


Will your Common Core implementation promote equity, access, and inclusion?


This illuminating book shows how central Common Core tenets—rigor, meaningful curricula and assessment, and higher order thinking—can become educational realities for every child in your school or district.


Written by a team of respected authors known for guiding schools and districts towards cultural proficiency, this resource enables readers to

Understand how underlying beliefs related to historically-underserved students may create roadblocks to effective instruction
Create a school culture where diversity is valued, including developing relevant professional learning
Compile and analyze meaningful data that enables faculty to better reach students from all backgrounds
Advance the goal of college and career-readiness for all learners


With a compelling call to action and practical strategies, this timely book points the way to a Common Core implementation that benefits every student.


"The authors have ensured that the use of cultural proficiency by educators provides the Common Core State Standards with the ′step towards the place where equity and access are realized for all learners.′ Equity and access, two of the pillars of equity in education, are essential if meeting individual student needs are truly to occur."

—Dr. Kenneth R. Magdaleno, Associate Professor

"This resource gives not only theory and rationale for this important change in thinking, but also the guided steps to collaborate and reflect as part of the change process."
