Publisher's Summary

 This is a bold, brain-based teaching approach to culturally responsive instruction.

To close the achievement gap, diverse classrooms need a proven framework for optimizing student engagement. Culturally responsive instruction has shown promise, but many teachers have struggled with its implementation until now.

In this audiobook, Zaretta Hammond draws on cutting-edge neuroscience research to offer an innovative approach for designing and implementing brain-compatible culturally responsive instruction.

The audiobook includes:

  • Information on how one’s culture programs the brain to process data and affects learning relationships
  • Ten "key moves" to build students’ learner operating systems and prepare them to become independent learners
  • Prompts for action and valuable self-reflection

Fantastic book for teachers- pity about the charts

This book was such an eye-opener for me. I loved that Zaretta Hammond narrates it herself. I don't think I would have absorbed the information so well had another narrator been at the helm due to her clear authority on the subject. I especially appreciated all of the neurologic data included, which greatly helps me understand the sometimes unpredictable behavior of my underprivileged students. I even used her information about the amygdala as the basis for one of my first lessons on the first day of school, so they can start to recognize if it is being hijacked, and how to cope with it. Every time I was a little baffled at the information presented, Hammond clarifies with an anecdotal illustration. Overall the book makes the recent sociological and psychological data that is relevant to teachers accessible and digestible.

There were a lot of references to charts. I looked up the book and was sent to a website, but it wasn't clear if I could see the charts based on my purchase of the audiobook or if I would need to pay $150 for a special online course to become more culturally responsive. I must say I'm tempted to take the course, but I would have liked to have been able to see the data to whichHammond was referring.

Perfect for an Interview!

I am a recently graduated MAT and this was perfect to listen to while I was driving to interviews. It reignites my passion for urban education whenever I read it and people were blown away with how well-read I was. I now have a full time job just one month after graduating!
