What will you do to promote multilingual learners’ equity?  

Our nation’s moment of reckoning with the deficit view of multilingual learners has arrived. The COVID-19 pandemic has further exposed and exacerbated long-standing inequities that stand in the way of MLs’ access to effective instruction. Recent events have also caused us to reflect on our place as educators within the intersection of race and language. In this innovative book, Sydney Snyder and Diane Staehr Fenner share practical, replicable ways you can draw from students’ strengths and promote multilingual learners' success within and beyond your own classroom walls. 

In this book you’ll find

Practical and printable, research-based tools that guide you on how to implement culturally responsive teaching in your context
Case studies and reflection exercises to help identify implicit bias in your work and mitigate deficit-based thinking
Authentic classroom video clips in each chapter to show you what culturally responsive teaching actually looks like in practice
Hand-drawn sketch note graphics that spotlight key concepts, reinforce central themes, and engage you with eye-catching and memorable illustrations

There is no time like the present for you to reflect on your role in culturally responsive teaching and use new tools to build an even stronger school community that is inclusive of MLs. No matter your role or where you are in your journey, you can confront injustice by taking action steps to develop a climate in which all students’ backgrounds, experiences, and cultures are honored and educators, families, and communities work collaboratively to help MLs thrive. We owe it to our students.

Index

"Culturally Responsive Teaching for Multilingual Learners is the gift that keeps on giving for school leaders and teachers alike. More than just an engaging and informative text, the book informs well-rounded programming for multilingual learners from soup to nuts and inspires a reflective look at what we are currently doing versus what we should be doing to advance multilingual learner success in schools. Each chapter could be the source of personal goal setting for educators, material for a professional learning community, the focus of school or district professional development sessions, or a reference for use when evaluating a school’s program for multilingual learners. Regardless of its use, Snyder and Fenner have set up space through a literary medium for educators to overcome feelings of ill-preparedness or uncertainty to program, plan instruction, and deliver instruction for multilingual learners as well as to engage their families."

"Sometimes turning principles and theories into practice can feel like grasping at smoke. However, in this book, Sydney Snyder and Diane Staehr Fenner provide solid examples and strategies of how to intentionally teach with multilinguals' assets as the center of our instruction. Their book will celebrate what we are already doing to be culturally responsive and expand our skill sets."

"Sydney Snyder and Diane Staehr Fenner have provided a great and humbling multifaceted learning resource with something for everyone to dive into and explore personally and professionally. Videos, student portraits, downloadable tools, and fun graphics provide the opportunity to self-reflect or learn as a group, but more importantly to continue that uncomfortable and necessary never-ending cultural journey."
