Culturally Responsive Teaching: Celebrating Diversity in Our Schools

New York State’s classrooms are among the most diverse in the country. As our school communities welcome a growing population of culturally, ethnically and linguistically diverse students, we are challenged to help them assimilate and to build a school community that is responsive to their diverse needs.

Culturally responsive teaching embraces diversity by encouraging all students to share their own perspectives, experiences and differences in order to foster a community of learning that nurtures these unique characteristics and incorporates them into the fabric of the school. We call for articles that document culturally responsive teaching practices across K-12 or in partnership with higher education.

Examples of submission areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Multicultural awareness
  • Culturally responsive teaching and the brain
  • Student-centered learning
  • Student-directed learning
  • Culturally mediated instruction
  • Social justice education
  • Family and community engagement
  • P-20 partnerships
  • Higher education research and practice
  • Family and community outreach initiatives
  • Grassroots collaboration with the school community
