Culture matters when it comes to teaching and learning. Culturally
relevant teaching assumes that every child enters a classroom with rich
cultural knowledge and lived experiences that help them learn each day.
In this issue of XChange, UCLA faculty, alumni, and students share their
work to document and advance teaching that builds on these cultural
assets and respects the strengths of all learners.
