Transform your classroom and school and create opportunities for students from all cultural backgrounds

Culture to the Max!: Culturally Responsive Teaching and Practice presents readers with a powerful new set of Culturally Responsive Teaching standards that can be used by teachers and administrators to counter institutionalized racism and white supremacy. The book offers an in-depth look into the practice and implementation of Culturally Responsive Teaching that can inform curriculum development, teacher evaluation, and classroom and culture evaluation.

In this book, readers will find:
* The criteria necessary to apply consistent reliability and efficacy guidelines to culturally responsive practices
* A seven-pillar Culturally Responsive Teaching framework that includes essential skills development, experiential learning, leadership development, identity development, restorative justice, social and emotional learning, and sociopolitical consciousness
* Expert opinions, practice tips, and personal anecdotes that address the challenges and triumphs of the implementation of culturally responsive classroom behaviors

Perfect for K-12 educators and administrators, Culture to the Max! also belongs in the libraries of teachers-in-training and higher education professionals who seek to acknowledge, respond to, and celebrate the right of all students to enjoy full and equitable access to education.
