I have used HOW TO TEACH STUDENTS WHO DON'T LOOK LIKE YOU as a required text for a graduate level "Diverse Classrooms" course. Students have found it to be a superb resource and I have received consistently positive feedback on this text. The accompanying FACILITATOR'S GUIDE to HOW TO TEACH STUDENTS WHO DON'T LOOK LIKE YOU provides additional information and ideas and that, too, has been well received by students. My graduate students are currently teaching or finishing their Masters Degree for teacher certification. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TEXT!
