Description

Culturally relevant approaches to teaching, such as using music that is culturally relevant to the children in a classroom, has fostered positive social and academic outcomes. By connecting a student’s home culture to their classroom culture, meaningful relationships can form. However, many teachers do not have adequate support to guide them as they aspire to reach their diverse students.

Evidence-Based Approaches to Becoming a Culturally Responsive Educator: Emerging Research and Opportunities is a critical scholarly resource that delves into the conceptualizations and belief systems that drive culturally relevant teachers to teach and learn in ways that produce favorable outcomes for all children. Additionally, it prompts and promotes scholarship that allows teachers to become critically reflective and conscious of their teacher identity, beliefs of children, educational beliefs, teaching/learning approaches, and personal/professional development. Highlighting topics such as learning outcomes, pedagogy, and teacher preparation, this book is ideal for academicians, researchers, educators, administrators, and education students.
