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 qvirtual walkthroughsq 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.
