What can educators do to improve the literacy learning of students of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds? This book highlights four keys to success that educators can use. It shows that it can be done-the literacy achievement gap can be closed, and culturally responsive instruction is an important part of the solution. Students of diverse backgrounds can achieve high levels of literacy, in classrooms where learning can be joyful, and in schools where educators have a strong sense of community and purpose.
