Learn proven techniques to increase achievement in ethnically diverse classrooms!

This compelling guide masterfully demonstrates how high achievement can exist in the midst of high minority enrollment and high poverty. By drawing upon the best practices of 13 exemplary schools, the book highlights the specific means by which ethnically diverse—namely African American and Latino—students can attain educational success. These "Promising Practices" are presented in a user-friendly, well-organized format, with real examples interwoven throughout.

An invaluable resource, it shares school-tested methods that can be replicated readily, including:

  • 7 strategies for principals to be effective leaders, creating a culture of equal learning opportunities for all students
  • 8 tactics for successful curriculum and classroom instruction, from assessment to staff development
  • 9 proven ways to make meaningful connections with parents, which promote higher student and teacher performance
