About this title

Synopsis:

A bold, brain-based teaching approach to culturally responsive instruction


To close the achievement gap, diverse classrooms need a proven framework for optimizing student engagement. Culturally responsive instruction has shown promise, but many teachers have struggled with its implementation―until now.

 

In this book, Zaretta Hammond draws on cutting-edge neuroscience research to offer an innovative approach for designing and implementing brain-compatible culturally responsive instruction.

 

The book includes:

 

  • Information on how one’s culture programs the brain to process data and affects learning relationships
  • Ten "key moves" to build students’ learner operating systems and prepare them to become independent learners
  • Prompts for action and valuable self-reflection
