Creating a Classroom for Diverse Learners

Abstract

Culturally, racially, ethnically, and linguistically diverse students are the topic of much discussion in education forums, creating many avenues for research of this topic.  Current research points to the imminent need for culturally relevant teaching practices to be better utilized in successfully including these students in the classroom environment.  Disproportionality, the cultural divide, and the achievement gap are all very real issues facing minority students.  The articles and research reviewed prove to educators that these problems exist, as well as strategies to improve upon them. This issue of NASET’s Practical Teacher was written by Kaitlynn M. Penner from Florida International University and focuses on creating a classroom for diverse learners
