An equitable, inclusive and practical application of culturally responsive teaching that transcends learning environments
Educators in the 21st century are teaching diverse learners across a range of learning environments, while attending to critical issues related to equity, inclusion, and social justice. Now there’s a resource to help you merge the essential skills of embedding culturally responsive teaching practices into online and in person learning settings. Using the Dynamic Equitable Learning Environments (DELE) framework, you can build the knowledge, awareness, skills, and dispositions to pivot instruction to facilitate equitable, inclusive, and anti-racist learning experiences that transcend cultural, social, and linguistic backgrounds—no matter where, when, or how your students do their learning.
Combining an interactive workspace with teacher preparation and professional development, this book provides an action planner and toolkit for embedding culturally responsive teaching into online and in person instruction. Other features include:
- Demonstrative, inspirational, and culturally responsive practical approaches for online and in person educational settings
- Self-reflection questions, anti-bias exercises, and critical-thinking activities that support equity-mindedness
- Culturally sustaining checklist templates
- Links to additional responsive online resources, readings, and culturally relevant media
- Action plan templates to work through in each chapter
- Additional Call to Action practices to pursue after completing the book
When you commit to culturally responsive teaching, you want to build your own capacity to provide every learner, in every educational setting, the ability to connect with the curriculum in authentic and equitable ways. This book enables you to do just that by providing the pedagogical strategies to meaningfully engage all learners, especially in online settings, and ensure that your class is inclusive, decolonized, and takes into account the diverse lived experiences of all learners, their families, and communities.
