The achievement of students of color continues to be disproportionately low at all levels of education. More than ever, Geneva Gays foundational book on culturally responsive teaching is essential reading in addressing the needs of todays 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 expanded coverage of student ethnic groups: African and Latino Americans as well as Asian and Native Americans as well as new material on culturally diverse communication, addressing common myths about language diversity and the effects of English Plus instruction.
