Classroom Cultures: Equitable Schooling for Racially Diverse Youth



This practical resource will assist secondary educators in creating equitable schooling environments for racially diverse youth. Classroom Cultures provides direct insight into the experiences, challenges, and successes of teachers and school leaders who were among more than 500 educators across 29 schools who engaged in professional development to better understand and implement culturally relevant educational practices. The authors identify key aspects of successful strategies and offer recommendations for tackling the many challenges of implementing effective school change. Short vignettes incorporate the perspectives of teachers, counselors, administrators, and the authors as they collaborate and reflect on their own practices. Each chapter includes critical questions to help readers reflect on their own experiences and perspectives with a view to strengthening their commitment to equity.
