Equity 101: Culture
Book 2



September 2013 | 128 pages | Corwin

Help a culture of equity grow and thrive in your school!

This second book in the groundbreaking Equity 101 series takes on culture: the cultures we come from as individuals and the culture we foster in our schools. With students and educators from so many different backgrounds, how do we create a school culture of equity in which everyone succeeds?

Discover the actions teachers and administrators take to do just that. Using real-life success stories as models, you’ll start

  • Recognizing inadvertent cultural biases and increasing educators’ cultural competency
  • Overcoming institutionalized factors that limit achievement
  • Implementing equitable practices that ensure individualized support for all students

Featuring chapter-specific implementation exercises that take you from ideas to action, plus a dedicated online community with videos and discussion groups, this book is the next step on your path to true equity in your school!

“Creating, nurturing, and sustaining an educational culture where individual differences are affirmed, and instruction is continuously tailored based on these differences, is essential to enhancing student achievement. This book is your practical how-to guide.”
—David Freitas, Professor
Indiana University South Bend

Index

"Equity 101 uses a common sense approach to a complex problem. In America, we too often associate rigor with hard work that causes failure, and this author brings to light the notion that rigor is really about equal achievement for all children. We must believe that all children have a right to succeed in our schools, and the stories and vignettes remind us this is possible."

Toni Jones, Superintendent
Falls Church City Public Schools, VA
