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:

"Finally, a book that I can use: a hands-on, foot-to-the-pedal kind of reading experience. Of all the books on educational coaching available, this one answers my actual day-to-day questions. You can tell Bonnie Davis has been there. An invaluable resource!"--Mary Kim Schreck, Educational Consultant (07/10/2007)

"There is a knowing-doing gap in education today. The knowledge of how to teach successfully with all students is out there, but little of it is actually applied in the classroom. To close this, schools must rely upon coaches who help individual teachers at the classroom level discover how to succeed with every student. Bonnie Davis's book explicitly shows new and experienced coaches alike how they can successfully work with any teacher to improve classroom instruction. This book is practical to the core! Rather than straining the practical out of the theoretical, Davis provides coaches with all they need to know to successfully connect with every teacher they work with. Weaving together actual coaching experiences, the theory behind the practice, guidelines, methodology, and guided reflection for the coach, Davis has produced a remarkable tool that no coach should go without!"--Curtis Linton, Co-owner, School Improvement Network (09/17/2007)

"Teachers and college-level education courses will find an excellent, refreshing survey of coaching techniques. An essential guide to growth and understanding and flexibility that builds applied techniques for the real-world classroom."--The Bookwatch, March 2008 (04/24/2008)
