“The authors provide a clear and comprehensive model for becoming culturally considerate. The transparent reflections of their journey are refreshing. This book is for the new and seasoned educators, alike. You will walk away with sincere reflections that propel you to face the bias by which we all operate.”
“Creating Culturally Considerate Schools is a thought-provoking resource for pre-service teachers and current practitioners. Its unique approach will captivate the reader’s attention.”
“A most unique kind of book that will appeal to the millions of caring teachers that are struggling to understand issues of diversity in a meaningful way. This book will impact how successful teachers can actually be when teaching diverse students.”
“This book provides numerous opportunities for teachers' self-reflection on the journey of creating a culturally considerate classroom.”
"I particularly like the book because of the dialogue style. The authors each share their perspectives and help me reflect on the complexities of issues that I deal with. It's so easy to read books that reinforce our worldview, and similarly to reject books that confront us with a different perspective than our own. I thought that this book struck a good balance between the two."
Fits well with course objectives.
