Addressing the Achievement Gap and Disproportionality through the Use of Culturally Responsive Teaching Practices
Griner, Angela Christine; Stewart, Martha Lue
Urban Education, v48 n4 p585-621 Jul 2013
Culturally responsive practices in schools and classrooms have been shown to be an effective means of addressing the achievement gap as well as the disproportionate representation of racially, culturally, ethnically, and linguistically diverse students in programs serving students with special needs. While there has been much research discussing these issues, teachers and school staff lack clear examples and tools for best practices toward addressing these issues effectively. This research provides a practical tool to encourage teachers and school staff to engage in reflective, culturally responsive practice as well as highlighting the need to include a range of stakeholders in the process of developing, implementing, and evaluating tools for educational practice.
