When the first edition of Diversity and Motivation was published in 1995, it became a premier resource for faculty and administrators seeking effective and practical strategies that foster motivation among culturally diverse student groups. This revised and updated second edition of Diversity and Motivation offers a comprehensive understanding of teaching methods that promote respect, relevance, engagement, and academic success. Margery B. Ginsberg and Raymond J. Wlodkowski base their insights and concrete suggestions on their experiences and research as college faculty. The book defines norms, illustrates practices, and provides tools to develop four foundational conditions for intrinsically motivated learning: establishing inclusion, developing a positive attitude, enhancing meaning, and engendering competence. The authors provide perspectives on the social justice implications of each condition. Diversity and Motivation includes resources to help educators create a supportive community of learners, facilitate equitable discussions in linguistically diverse classrooms, design engaging lessons, and assess students fairly. The ideas in this book apply across disciplines and include teaching practices that can be easily adapted to a range of postsecondary settings. In addition, the authors include a cohesive approach to syllabus construction, lesson design, and faculty development.

In this book, Johnnie McKinley presents the results of her in-depth study of a group of teachers in grades 3-8 who managed to radically narrow the achievement gap between their black and white students by using a set of culturally responsive strategies in their classrooms. McKinley uses the educators' own words and illustrative "virtual walkthroughs" of lessons in action to examine these strategies in detail. In addition, the book includes * An overview of the research literature on effective responses to the achievement gap; * Instructions for conducting classroom walkthroughs, including a series of feedback forms that teachers can use to conduct walkthroughs in their schools; and * A comprehensive guide to the author's Teaming for Culturally Responsive Classrooms (TCRC) model--an innovative multistep framework for assessing the cultural responsiveness of teaching strategies in schools. Educators have been struggling for decades to remedy the disparity in academic outcomes between black and white students. This book shows how one remarkable group of teachers harnessed the power of culturally responsive teaching to do just that. By following the path outlined in Raising Black Students' Achievement Through Culturally Responsive Teaching, you too can help your black students to become engaged, self-confident, and successful learners.

We already know what works in schools; we just need to focus on getting it right. This is the premise of Simply Better: Doing What Matters Most to Change the Odds for Student Success, which offers a practical, research-based framework for improving student achievement. According to author Bryan Goodwin, decades of research have shown time and again that focusing on the following five essential practices can vastly increase students' chances of doing well in school: * Guaranteeing that instruction is challenging, engaging, and intentional * Ensuring curricular pathways to success * Providing whole-child student supports * Creating high-performance school cultures * Developing data-driven, high-reliability district systems Whether at the district-, school-, or classroom-level, educators don't need to reinvent the wheel or pursue the latest trends to ensure that students succeed. This powerful book reveals what research clearly shows works best in schools, and provides a valuable blueprint for turning that knowledge into visible results.
