In this book study, students will learn that the achievement gap remains a stubborn problem for educators of culturally and linguistically diverse students. With the introduction of the rigorous Common Core State Standards, diverse classrooms need a proven framework for optimizing student engagement and facilitating deeper learning.

Culturally responsive pedagogy has shown great promise in meeting this need, but many educators still struggle with its implementation. In this book, Zaretta Hammond draws on cutting-edge neuroscience research to offer an innovative approach for designing and implementing brain-compatible culturally responsive instruction.

The book includes:

  • Information on how one’s culture programs the brain to process data and affects learning relationships
  • Ten “key moves” to build students’ learner operating systems and prepare them to become independent learners
  • Prompts for action and valuable self-reflection

With a firm understanding of these techniques and principles, teachers and instructional leaders will confidently reap the benefits of culturally responsive instruction.

    This is a great book study for all teachers. No matter how long you've been in the classroom, you will learn something that will benefit you and your students!

    This book study was just what I needed having recently become aware of my own implicit bias and our racialized socioeconomic society overall. This class gave me new understandings of how the brain learns and how it is through culture that we make sense of the world. I now have tools to help dependent learners become independent. I will view students' strengths rather than deficit! All teachers should read this book! Plus the instructors are very professional and flexible and these classes at COpilot are SO doable! Take this class! DO IT! 🤓

    This is the class to take if you and your school faculty are wondering how to deal with struggling students of color and students of linguistically diverse populations.
