Teaching children from diverse backgrounds begins with simple questions: What is my culture? What are my students' cultures? How does culture affect how I teach and how my students learn?

This comprehensive guide provides detailed examples that show why and how to create culturally responsive, standards-based (CRSB) instruction in the classroom, schoolwide, and at the district level. Results of effective programs include: increased academic success for all learners; engaged and motivated students; development of critical thinking skills ncessary for higher learning; and strengthened partnerships between students, families, and communities. This new edition is enhanced with nationwide examples, up-to-date resources, and tools that can be implemented immediately. Principals, administrators, K - 12 teachers, curriculum and staff developers, and college instructors will find this handbook a valuable and powerful tool for promoting student engagment and improving struggling schools.

In Teaching with Vision, two respected scholars in teaching for social justice have gathered teachers from across the country to describe rich examples of extraordinary practice. This collection showcases the professional experience and wisdom of classroom teachers who have been navigating standards- and test-driven teaching environments in California and New York, without losing their vision of what teaching can be. Representing diverse backgrounds, schools, grade levels, subject areas, and specialties, these teachers talk personally about their practice, their challenges, and how they learned to maintain a social and pedagogical vision for their work. This book is essential reading for new teachers who are struggling to make their teaching inspiring, creative, and culturally responsive, especially those who are working in less than supportive environments.

This groundbreaking text in instructional leadership and supervision continues to challenge and reshape the conventional purposes, practices, structure, and language of supervision. The text's emphases on school culture, teachers as adult learners, developmental leadership, democratic education, and collegial supervision have helped redefine the meaning of supervision and instructional leadership. The Eighth Edition continues the book's trend-setting tradition by placing instructional leadership and school improvement within a community and societal context; providing new examples of direct assistance, professional development, and action research; and presenting an entire new chapter, “Supervision for What? Democracy and the Good School.” Building on the success of previous editions, the Eighth Edition addresses hot issues such as school improvement, constructivist teaching, professional development, Chaos Theory, and state-mandated standards. This is a resource that students purchase, use in class, and reference throughout their careers as education leaders.
