Overview

Culturally responsive pedagogy, literacy, and English learner education expert Socorro Herrera has updated this bestseller to clarify, focus, and redefine concepts for the continued professional development of educators serving culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) populations. Teaching strategies and tools have been updated to reflect important new brain research and to keep pace with our nation's ever-changing demographics and constant shift in expectations for K—12 students. Herrera has also revised the structure and format of the book to help educators find information quickly while working in highly complex and demanding environments.

New for the Second Edition:

  • Teaching strategies and tools based on the most current knowledge in the field.
  • Authentic classroom artifacts that have been collected from teachers across the country.
  • Glossary of key terms providing an auxiliary resource for current readers and for future applications of content in professional practice.
  • Reorganized features with new icons providing a more user-friendly text for practitioner and classroom use.
  • Updated excerpts from grade-level classroom teachers clarifying practice with CLD students and families.

Grounded in the latest theory and with more user-friendly features, the Second Edition of Biography-Driven Culturally Responsive Teaching will help educators to reflect on their assumptions and perspectives, integrate best practices, and accelerate CLD students' academic learning.
