A Practical Guide to Accelerating Student Achievement across Cultures: Strategies for Administrators, Teachers, Students, and Parents
Maryland State Department of Education
This document was developed to provide action steps that can be taken by teachers, parents, administrators, and students themselves to develop the personal, cognitive, and social dimensions of students. These advocates are identified in "The Holistic Learner Framework: A Culturally Responsive Approach to Accelerating the Achievement of Low Performing Students". The Guide is divided into four sections, one section for each advocate. Within each section, the five Cultural Competencies, previously developed by the "Education That Is Multicultural and Achievement" (ETMA) Network, are delineated by goal and strategies for each competency. These five core competencies and goals are as follows: (1) Participating in Intercultural Communication; (2) Reducing Prejudice; (3) Establishing Culturally Supportive Learning Environments; (4) Designing and Implementing Curriculum and Instruction for Education That Is Multicultural and Accelerating Minority Achievement; and (5) Designing Tests, Measurements, and Assessments for Achievement Equity. "Professional Development Competencies for Enhancing Teacher Efficacy in Implementing Education That Is Multicultural and Accelerating Minority Achievement" is appended.
