Closing the Achievement Gap: A Vision for Changing Beliefs and Practices. Second Edition.
Williams, Belinda, Ed.
This second edition of "Closing the Achievement Gap" argues that if education reform is to work, educators must become more sensitive to the worldviews of disadvantaged students--and incorporate this awareness into their day-to-day work. This book also offers specific suggestions for bridging the cultural divide through such diverse methods as direct vocabulary instruction, opportunity-to-learn strategies, and school-level organizational reform.
