Culturally Responsive Teaching. Second Edition. Multicultural Education Series
Gay, Geneva
Teachers College Press
The achievement of students of color continues to be disproportionately low at all levels of education. More than ever, Geneva Gay's foundational book on culturally responsive teaching is essential reading in addressing the needs of today's diverse student population. Combining insights from multicultural education theory and research with real-life classroom stories, Gay demonstrates that all students will perform better on multiple measures of achievement when teaching is filtered through their own cultural experiences. This bestselling text has been extensively revised to include: (1) Expanded coverage of student ethnic groups: African and Latino Americans as well as Asian and Native Americans; (2) A new section on standards and diversity; (3) New examples of culturally diverse curriculum content; (4) More examples of programs and techniques that exemplify culturally responsive teaching; (5) An emphasis on positive, action-driven possibilities in student-teacher relationships; and (6) New material on culturally diverse communication, addressing common myths about language diversity and the effects of "English Plus" instruction.
