Cuturally Relevant Teaching - Spring 2013
IN THIS ISSUE
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.
