Culturally Responsive Teaching for Multilingual Learners: Tools for Equity

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 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 looks like in practice
  • Hand-drawn sketch note graphics that spotlight key concepts and reinforce central themes with 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.

Advocating for English Learners

Embrace the future by ensuring English Learners (ELs) have a voice in school.

ELs are the fastest-growing segment of the K–12 population. But ELs and their families—who are in the process of learning English and navigating an often-unfamiliar education system—may not have a powerful enough voice to articulate their needs. Consequently, all teachers and administrators must advocate for this all-important diverse group of students who will become tomorrow’s workforce. This book demystifies the techniques of advocacy for ELs, including:

  • A shared sense of responsibility for EL success —Providing tools that every educator can use to ensure that ELs are effectively served.
  • An overview for administrators —Influencing policy and fostering a culture that meets EL needs.
  • Advocacy for ELs’ success beyond Grade 12 —Equipping ELs for life after graduation, from higher education to career decisions.

Evaluating ALL Teachers of English Learners and Students With Disabilities

Supporting Great Teaching

Teacher evaluation can be a valuable tool for evaluators and teachers alike. But it should never be used in a “one-size-fits-all” manner, especially when evaluating all teachers who work with the nation’s growing numbers of English learners (ELs) and students with disabilities.

Just as these diverse students’ needs require nuanced teaching methods, the evaluations of all teachers who work with these students require unique considerations. Such considerations are precisely what you’ll learn in this comprehensive, action-oriented book. Drawing on a focused array of authoritative research on supporting the success of ELs and students with disabilities, case studies, and action plans, the authors detail

  • Four principles for inclusive teacher evaluation of diverse learners that are compatible with the Danielson and Marzano frameworks
  • Sample specialized “look-fors” that evaluators can use and adapt to recognize effective teaching of ELs and students with disabilities
  • Strategies for coaching teachers of ELs and students with disabilities who need more support reaching these learners

Teaching ELs and students with disabilities can be one of the most challenging experiences in an educator’s career, and also one of the most rewarding if educators have the tools they need. With this book, the first of its kind, your school can become a leader in the field by taking part in conversations that center on equitable teaching of diverse learners as well as valid evaluation of those who serve them in classrooms.
