Part of students' background knowledge is the diverse cultural experiences that they bring to your classroom every day. This program teaches ways to use personal stories, writing projects, and classroom activities to get to know your students and their prior knowledge of subject material. It shows how to pick instructional strategies and teaching resources that are most appropriate for a student's background and reviews ideas for putting a program in place that encourages cultural responsiveness and positive attitudes about diversity in your classroom, school, and community.
