Use instructional practices that lead students of poverty and diverse cultures to success!

Many caring teachers have expressed a need for more help in improving student achievement, especially in low-performing/high-poverty schools. This research-based book offers a comprehensive set of instructional strategies that have been proven to make a significant difference in student learning when diverse cultures and poverty come into play.

Donna Walker Tileston and Sandra K. Darling provide a six-part framework to help teachers build on students' assets and strengths rather than attempt to overcome perceived disadvantages. Based on their extensive experience and gathered data, the authors discuss:

* Why some cultures are "turned off" by typical motivational approaches and what educators can do to reach students
* What research says about the brain's desire to learn
* How teachers can build on students' prior knowledge and help forge new connections
* The importance of resiliency, especially for students of poverty and diverse cultures
* Teaching procedural and declarative knowledge and preparing students for high-stakes tests

This practical resource provides the key structures for working effectively with students of differing cultures and poverty, ensuring higher student achievement in the diverse classroom.
