What are the elements of culturally responsive and sustaining instruction? How can these elements be implemented in classrooms?

One of the most effective methods of addressing these issues is the Culturally Responsive Instruction Observation Protocol (CRIOP), which is being used in school districts nationwide to guide teacher professional development. A Framework for Culturally Responsive Practices presents scholarship in second language acquisition, sociolinguistics, culturally appropriate assessment, educational anthropology, educational psychology, instruction, and critical pedagogy to provide guidance to those who strive to teach in ways that meet the needs of a diverse student population. The book is a culmination of the authors' many years of experience as both researchers and instructional coaches in schools, presenting a comprehensive portrait of the research and practices associated with culturally responsive teaching. Each chapter showcases a different element of the CRIOP, providing supporting research as well as ways to implement the element in K-8 classrooms. The book also includes several specific examples written by teachers in the field and a comprehensive bibliography. This is a practical guide that can be used in a variety of courses for pre-service teachers as well as by teachers and administrators in school districts across the country.

Perfect for courses such as: Teaching in a Diverse Society, Multicultural Education, Effective Teaching Practices in Elementary/Middle School, Cultural and Social Foundations of Education, Teaching Diverse Populations, Sociocultural Perspectives in Education, Educational Perspectives in a Global Society, Educational Inequality, Urban Studies
