Can you relate to these experiences?
Dr. Dwayne D. Williams solves these problems by coaching readers through designing culturally meaningful activities from start to finish. He provides four tools, including a design template, that you will need to create activities aligned with your students’ cultural values, lived experiences, and community practices.
Engaging with activities in this workbook will help you—
- Unpack culturally responsive teaching in a practical way,
- Employ tools to adapt instructional lessons based on your students’ lived experiences, cultural values, and community practices,
- Pair evidence-based strategies and culturally responsive principles to design culturally meaningful activities—and more!
Dr. Williams creates opportunities for you to experience culturally meaningful lessons based on your identity as an educator, so you will know what they look and feel like in action. He illustrates ten common evidence-based practices teachers can employ in any classroom and pairs the strategies with culturally meaningful principles, demonstrating culturally meaningful activities!
