Bright Ribbons: Weaving Culturally Responsive Teaching Into the Elementary Classroom



January 2017 | 224 pages | Corwin

Weave culturally responsive teaching into every lesson and activity

Culturally responsive teaching practices are like bright ribbons: when you weave them into everything you teach, you create a beautiful tapestry for successful learning. Lotus Howard, who has spent four decades teaching in diverse classrooms, will show you how to build relationships with your students and create a harmonious community where every child can thrive. You’ll learn:

  • How to use culturally responsive teaching (CRT) not as an add-on, but as a philosophy that infuses every aspect of the school day
  • Simple strategies for weaving the seven principles of CRT into all lessons and activities, including morning greetings, transition times, and group work
  • How to be more self-reflective to better appreciate and unlock students’ unique gifts

With an array of practical tips, model lessons, and resources, this book will inspire you to weave a holistic tapestry of teaching and learning that benefits all children.
