The acheivement gap is a widely discussed topic in the field of education. Many educators find themselves at a loss in their attempt to reach the students they teach. This book was conceived of and written in response to a need. Educators, parents and political officials all over the United States are asking a lot of questions about the lack of success in the classroom. Many teachers are seeing students of the same cultural backgrounds, failing to achieve on grade level. The concepts explained within these pages will shed considerable light on this problem. The underlying thesis is if we begin to teach and interact with our students in a way that is culturally responsive, we will see marked increases in academic success. It is exceedingly important that we as educators stop making excuses and start looking carefully at our own practices. Are you culturally responsive? Do you understand the many underlying factors that contribute to the behaviors of each of your students? Even if you responded in the affirmative to both of those questions, this book will prove to be an invaluable resource to assist you in the creation of a culturally responsive learning environment. The goal of this work is to inform educators and help them to become more culturally responsive. The result is an environment where ALL students can learn.
