Learning how to use a variety of instructional methods to reach diverse students is vital in schools today. DIVERSITY AND EQUITY IN THE CLASSROOM will teach you how to bridge the gap between theory and practice using a student-centered and culture-centered approach based on a philosophy of social justice and equal outcomes for all students. You will learn why you should think about and value student culture, and how to weave those values into the curriculum and classroom. Guided by social constructivism as the cognitive foundation for learning, the text emphasizes the intersectionality of diverse identities, provides effective methods and strategies that you can use in the classroom to address prejudice and teach culturally diverse students, and prompts you to examine your own biases. Checklists, tips, and tools for classroom use are presented in every chapter and available electronically as Professional Resource Downloads in the online MindTap ® that supports the text.
