1 Review
"The children in America's classrooms are changing in complexion and complexity, making teaching students with diverse backgrounds one of the greatest challenges you'll face. Administrators are also under pressure to "close the achievement gap" between White and Asian students and their racial and ethnically diverse counterparts. So how do you make sure all of your students learn, when nearly 40% of U.S. citizens are racial or ethnic minorities, who may "see" the world through a completely different cultural "lens" than you do? This reflective workbook for reaching and teaching students of varied backgrounds offers successful strategies for all subjects and grade levels. Using this practical handbook, you will learn: how to first recognize one's own culture to understand needs of diverse learners, how to examine racism and its impact, strategies for establishing a school climate for teaching diverse learners, and research-based instructional strategies to implement across the disciplines. Using her expertise and success in training hundreds of teachers, Bonnie Davis created this interactive workbook to help new and experienced teachers find better ways of teaching their students"--Publisher's description.

Consulting Description

Bonnie M. Davis, PhD, is a veteran teacher of more than forty years who is passionate about education. She taught in middle schools, high schools, universities, homeless shelters, and a men’s prison.

She has presented at numerous national conferences and currently works in school districts across the country.

Dr. Davis’ work centers on examining what “we don’t know we don’t know” about ourselves in order to more effectively teach students who don’t look like us. Moving from self reflection to action, her books offer educators culturally responsive, standards-based instructional strategies that bridge culture, language, race, and ethnicity.

Dr. Davis’s publications include the How to Teach Students Who Don’t Look Like You: Culturally Responsive Teaching Strategies(2012);How to Coach Teachers Who Don’t Think Like You: Using Literacy Strategies to Coach Across Content Areas (2007); The Biracial and Multiracial Student Experience: A Journey to Racial Literacy(2009); and Creating Culturally Considerate Schools: Educating Without Bias (2012) with coauthor Kim L. Anderson. She is currently working on the Equity 101 Series with Curtin Linton, Executive Vice President of School Improvement Network.
