Editorial Reviews


"I can get future teachers to appreciate the role of culture and poverty, but it is very hard for them to translate that understanding into specific activities or strategies. This book provides strategies and supporting information about how and why culture and poverty are important. It provides so much more than any other text that I have ever used in an Introduction to Education course regarding working with diverse populations." (Rosemary Traoré, Assistant Professor of Urban Education 2008-08-29)

"Provides a rich collection of research for instructional strategies. The combination of a call to action and supporting strategies provides a tool kit for instructional leaders." (Mary Reeve, Director, Services for Exceptional Students 2008-10-23)

It was just OK because it was not a revelation for anyone who works in a title one school. We live it daily. No revelations, which I was hoping for. Would be good for a student with no experience.
