About the Author:

Consulting Description

Bonnie M. Davis, PhD, is a veteran teacher of more than forty years who is passionate about education. She taught in middle schools, high schools, universities, homeless shelters, and a men’s prison. She holds a doctorate in English from St. Louis University and is the recipient of numerous awards, including Teacher of the Year in two public school districts, the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching, and the Anti-Defamation League’s World of Difference Community Service Award. She has presented at numerous national conferences and currently works in school districts across the country.

Dr. Davis’ work centers on examining what “we don’t know we don’t know” about ourselves in order to more effectively teach students who don’t look like us. Moving from self reflection to action, her books offer educators culturally responsive, standards-based instructional strategies that bridge culture, language, race, and ethnicity.

Dr. Davis’s publications include the How to Teach Students Who Don’t Look Like You: Culturally Responsive Teaching Strategies(2012);How to Coach Teachers Who Don’t Think Like You: Using Literacy Strategies to Coach Across Content Areas (2007); The Biracial and Multiracial Student Experience: A Journey to Racial Literacy(2009); and Creating Culturally Considerate Schools: Educating Without Bias (2012) with coauthor Kim L. Anderson. She is currently working on the Equity 101 Series with Curtin Linton, Executive Vice President of School Improvement Network.

Review:

"This book shows teachers and administrators exactly how the knowledge that has been gathered by research on diverse learners can be put to use in their classrooms and schools." (Mariela Nuñez-Janes, Assistant Professor, Anthropology & Co-Director, Ethnic Studies 2005-05-16)

"The examples in the book are wonderful. I obtained a lot of ideas that I can share with preservice and inservice teachers as well as administrators. Reading this book will give educators the opportunity to gather information, reflect, and see ways to change their classrooms to reach all learners." (Rosalind Pijeaux Hale, Professor of Education 2005-05-26)

"Wow! Finally, a resource that helps teachers reflect personally and translate that learning into classroom strategies that will move us to eliminating the achievement gap!" (Dr. Cheryl L. Compton, Assistant Superintendent 2005-06-17)

"Dr. Davis′ book guides the reader through a personal reflection process that leads to a deeper understanding of the role of culture in teaching and learning. The workbook creates a format for educators to examine their environment, beliefs, and practices as they search for ways to help all students in their classes achieve academically." (Sandra Anderson, Instructional Specialist 2005-06-13)

"Dr Davis’ book illustrates the cultural competencies that educators need to understand when trying to reduce the achievement gap."

(Charles Rankin, Director 2005-06-24)

"Bonnie Davis was instrumental in structuring the MA in Diverse Learners for Fontbonne University. Her sensitivity to all aspects of diversity is without peer, and we were fortunate to have her mentor us through the design process. We look forward to the use of her book in this program" (William W. Freeman, Dean of Education 2005-07-15)

"For many years, Davis has masterfully taught students who don′t look like her. This book enables educators to explore her thoughtful pedagogies and emerge with strategies that improve teacher instruction and student performance. From a courageous teacher of teachers comes the real stuff that shows white teachers, and everyone else for that matter, how to effectively meet the needs of underserved students of color populations. Thank you Bonnie!"  (Glenn E. Singleton, Executive Director 2005-07-13)

"The author′s understanding and respect for student′s of varying abilities and diverse backgrounds are reflected in a wealth of practical and appropriate instructionsl strategies designed to motivate and challenge all readers and writers - whether they be eagar or reluctant." (Lola Mapes, Retired Elementary Teacher - Literacy Consultant 2005-07-11)

"Written in plain terms, How to Teach Students Who Don′t Look Like You is a singularly valuable resource especially for teachers struggling to close ′achievement gaps′ in the classroom." (Internet Bookwatch, Midwest Book Review, Vol. 16, Number 3, March 2006 2006-03-04)

"This resource, thoroughly researched yet easily readable, is likely to encourage and inspire teachers. Its practical, concrete approach provides educators with suggestions they can implement immediately so that they begin to see a difference in their students."
