This book looks at characteristics of high performing (HP) and low performing (LP) schools serving large numbers of underserved students (i.e., African American, Latino, and low socioeconomic). A review of the literature coupled with interviews of teachers and administrators of such schools reveal evidence that can be used to increase and sustain student achievement for all students, regardless of race and low socioeconomic conditions. A number of the key differences between HP and LP schools include: (1) The focus of Professional Development (PD), (2)Who and what determines the type, process and continuity of PD, (3) Collective Learning and Practice of HP and LP school communities, (4) Supportive School Culture and Climate, (5) Sustainability. Although many strategies and techniques have been implemented over the years to close the academic achievement gaps between HP and LP schools, the gap persists. This research shows that perhaps the reason for persistence lies not only in subject area content and pedagogy, but in a deeper human connection needed to ensure high quality education and sustainability. Effective PD will build mutual respect and community learning environment

Forging People: Race, Ethnicity, and Nationalit...

'Forging People explores the way in which Hispanic American thinkers in Latin America and Latino/a philosophers in the United States have posed and thought about questions of race, ethnicity, and nationality, and how they have interpreted the most significant racial and ethnic labels used in Hispanic America in connection with issues of rights, nationalism, power, and identity. Following the first introductory chapter, each of the essays addresses one or more influential thinkers, ranging from Bartolome de Las Casas on race and the rights of Amerindians; to Simon Bolâivar's struggle with questions of how to forge a nation from disparate populations; to modern and contemporary thinkers on issues of race, unity, assimilation, and diversity. Each essay carefully and clearly presents the views of key authors in their historical and philosophical context and provides brief biographical sketches and reading lists, as aids to students and other readers.'Latin American philosophy has a long history of engagementwith issues of race, ethnicity, and nationality. To date, however, there has been no volume that focused on the contributions of the major figures in the Latin American tradition, to illustrate their connections, and to illuminate the context in which much of their work occurred. This volume fills that gap and takes an important step in remedying this shortcoming in the existing philosophical literature, and also in the literature of related fields such as Latin American studies, ethnic studies, and the cross-disciplinary work of race, ethnicity, and nationality.' --Manuel Vargas, University of San Francisco '--

Connecting Readers to Multiple Perspectives

Connecting Readers to Multiple Perspectives: Using Culturally Relevant Pedagogy in a Multicultural Classroom, is a book that can serve as a resourceful instructional guide to those interested in the education of today's student. It offers insightful methods for reaching and teaching the whole student. This book introduces a unique theoretical framework, the Curriculum Connections Instructional Model(TM) (CCIM), designed with the student at the heart of teaching and learning. It encourages a shift in the way teachers view their role as an educator and in the types of relationships built with each student in order to help them reach their optimum best. The fluid design of this instructional model requires that educators and students constantly (re) negotiate six domains (Connection, Character, Community, Culture, Content and Critical Consciousness) in ways that encourage a continuous state of nurturing and building. The book's introduction provides an overview of each of the six domains and how the central idea of acknowledging student culture and personal interest are crucial to genuinely connecting with students where they are and using this knowledge as a building block to content area instruction and social justice education. The chapters that follow examine both children's and young adult literature exploring the Asian American, African American and Latino American experiences. There are four sections in each chapter. Section 1 - Introduction (Provides fundamental information about the cultural experience); Section 2 - Connection (Provides a critical literacy context for the chapter); Section 3 - Reflection (Provides teacher reflection exercises and recommendations for additional reading); Section 4 - Application (Provides interactive lessons for the classroom using the Before, During and After Reading Model). Each Application section also includes a Core Curriculum State Standard guide and a recommended readings list, which is grade appropriate. The three chapters exploring literature include information on research-based teaching methods, teacher reflection exercises, recommended readings for teachers, recommended book lists, interactive lessons with a Core Curriculum State Standard guide, and an appendix with lesson guides that teachers can reproduce for educational purposes.
