Hello everyone! Are you looking for 📚Something good to read! 📚
I am reading Culturally Responsive Teaching and The Brain: Promoting Authentic Engagement and Rigor Among Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students by Zaretta Hammond.
I thought I would share my notes after reading the introduction! If any of you have read this book, please leave your comments below, we would love to hear your thoughts!
Today I will share my thoughts about the introduction.
This section outlined the book and its purpose. It starts with a personal story and then goes on to hit the following points:
ü Neuroscience and Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT)
ü Making Culturally Responsive Teaching accessible
ü Zaretta Hammond’s intention when writing this book
ü What the book is and isn’t
ü Naming the students that are targeted in the book
ü Who the book is for
ü The outline of the book
ü Suggestions for getting the most out of the book
The part of this section I enjoyed the most was the very last. After reading the Introduction and pondering on it I wondered if that last heading was actually an example of CRT and provided explicit instruction for reading this book. Now that got my interest. Can’t wait to dive into Chapter One!
