Culturally Responsive and Literacy Instruction

Todays’ classrooms have students with varying skills and abilities, social or cultural backgrounds and physical characteristics. Due to these variances teachers should be prepared to meet the multiple educational, social, and emotional needs of all students. The culture of many students is different from that which much of the U.S. educational system is based on and we must consider restructuring the educational system in the United States.
