Description

Ticknor, Howard, and Overstreet offer educators insights into the how-tos of culturally responsive pedagogy. They build on their experiences and research of CRP to offer vignettes of literacy instruction that may be common in K-12 classrooms. These examples are offered as a way to situate how teachers may use research based and effective literacy practices while ignoring the identities and experiences of their students. They disrupt the vignettes using theories and concepts presented in the chapter to make visible how each practice could be reimagined to integrate more culturally responsive strategies. Example lessons and activities are provided in each chapter that offer readers glimpses into CRP thinking and decision making. Guiding prompts are also included for readers to use the chapter topic and example lessons to consider ways to be more culturally responsive teachers for their students and in their local communities.
