Foreword by Christine Sleeter
Decision Making Tools | Social Justice | Teaching Strategies for Diverse Students
This book is important because in this time of changing demographics and increased diversity, many teachers find that the strategies they have used in the past are successful with only some of the students in their classes. They want and need strategies that will assist them in being successful with all their students. This book will provide teachers with new strategies and skills that will fit diverse needs.
The book will also include a discussion of the history of equity auditing in education found in civil rights work, curriculum auditing, and state accountability systems.
"Equity audits are critical to improving the services we provide in today's diverse classroom. It is crucial that teachers and administrators see the inequities in the system and establish the protocols necessary to level the field."
“It is essential, but woefully insufficient, to desire excellence and equity. We need detailed, evidence-based, practical maps and guides. This powerful, useful book will chart our path beyond current inequities toward the assurance of quality teaching and learning for all.”
Equity is a main focus of the class.
