About the Course

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.

A worthwhile class based on neuroscience. It addresses culture in a meaningful and scientific way. All educators should take this course!
Lorraine Thorson
I like brain science and this course provided a good dose of it. The assignments are straightforward and reasonable.
Laurie S.
This course provided information on how one’s culture can affect the brain and learning. I appreciated reading about how the brain works and how I can help dependent learners become independent. The text and course requirements were manageable. There were many things I learned that I can apply in my classroom.
