Culturally Responsive Standards-Based Teaching helps K'12 teachers increase student motivation and achievement, leading to higher levels of student success. The authors focus on how teachers can tap into the inherent knowledge and culture that every student brings into the classroom to complement a standards-based curriculum. The book includes detailed examples of what culturally responsive standards-based teaching (CRSBT) looks like in actual school settings and includes a number of self-assessment and school assessment inventories and tools for use in the classroom.

Steffennbsp;Saifer has served as director of the Child and Family Program at Education Northwest since 2000 and as an adjunct faculty member at Portland State University since 1996, where he has taught graduate courses in education. His areas of work and expertise include cultural-historical activity theory, the role of play in human development, and school-family partnerships. Saifer has worked extensively in Russia and Eastern Europe, assisting in education curricula reform. He helped implement a graduate program in early childhood development at BRAC University in Dhaka, Bangladesh (co-funded by the Open Society Foundation). He is the author or co-author of numerous publications including Practical Solutions to Practically Every Problem: The Early Childhood Teacher's Manual (2003, Redleaf Press), and Education and the Culture of Democracy: Early Childhood Practice (1996, Open Society Institute).
