Accelerating and Extending Literacy for Diverse Students free pdf Accelerating and Extending the Literacy of Diverse Students keeps alive the conviction that the growing diverse student body can become successful learners. By creating a culturally relevant classroom that is validating and affirming as it acknowledges the strengths of diverse students, culturally relevant teaching can empower students, motivating them to excel in the classroom and beyond. Each chapter provides sound strategies that can be used to transform teaching of diverse students, using technology, visual literacy, picture books, bibliotherapy, and explorations of where words come from leading to a deeper appreciation and use of words as students read and write. Realizing that teaching can be wearing and stressful, one chapter provides suggestions on how teachers can recharge and nurture their inner lives to be the happy teachers that can change the world.
