Promising Programs and Practices in Multicultural Education.
North Central Regional Educational Lab., Oak Brook, IL.
The North Central Regional Educational Laboratory has developed principles for culturally responsive education, along with a series of tools to help educators respond to the needs of students from a variety of cultural backgrounds. This selective listing of promising programs and practices has been developed to provide examples of professional development programs, school-based initiatives, and other efforts to implement culturally responsive education. The listing will help educators reflect upon, adapt, and restructure their own educational programs to serve an increasingly diverse student population. Program and practice descriptions are grouped into the following sections: (1) five professional development programs; (2) 11 school initiatives; (3) eight curricular and instructional programs and practices; and (4) 10 resource organizations.
