A comprehensive account of the important role that culture plays in the teaching and learning process.-- Urban Education(for previous edition)
"Beginning with the assertion that the PreK-12 educational system as it exists now is inequitable, particularly for children of color, Gay demolishes the deficit-based models of achievement remediation, instead arguing for a more holistic appreciation for the gifts and strengths children from diverse cultural backgrounds bring to the classroom environment and how teachers can better prepare to act in culturally-responsive ways."--The Wabash Center Journal on Teaching
"While the structure and premise of the book remain unchanged, the third edition responds to the question educators continue to ask: How do we do it?...This book is an invaluable resource to preservice and inservice teachers as well as teacher educators. Gay continues to challenge the reader to be proactive and stay the course. She offers a framework that remains relevant and continues to challenge us to do better, reminding us that the need for culturally responsive teaching persists."--Teachers College Record
