Culturally Proficient Instruction (Multimedia Kit)
A Multimedia Kit for Professional Development


48 pages | Corwin

Use these training tools to help teachers create classrooms that honor and respect all students!

Cultural proficiency enables educators to create an inclusive and instructionally powerful learning environment. Culturally proficient instructors are deeply connected to the beliefs, behaviors, and values of individuals and their communities. They also recognize that cultural proficiency encompasses five essential elements: assessing culture, valuing diversity, managing the dynamics of difference, adapting to diversity, and institutionalizing cultural knowledge.

To increase all educators' awareness of what cultural proficiency looks like and feels like, this all-in-one multimedia kit gives staff developers the tools to create high-quality professional learning—from a one-day workshop to a yearlong study group. Featuring authors Kikanza Nuri Robins, Randall B. Lindsey, Delores B. Lindsey, and Raymond D. Terrell, the video and DVD include intimate discussions with teachers, principals, and administrators about their journeys to become culturally proficient. The complementary facilitator's guide includes directions for leading discussions, using workshop activities and application activities, selecting appropriate video/DVD clips, and designing a workshop or other professional learning activity.

Providing agendas, overheads, handouts, and an evaluation form to help make workshop planning a turnkey experience, the kit features:

  • The bestseller, Culturally Proficient Instruction, Second Edition
  • A 40-minute VHS video featuring all four authors
  • A DVD with matching video content and easy-to-use navigation features
  • A facilitator's guide linking the video/DVD to the book

This powerful multimedia training kit is ideal for K-12 teachers and administrators, higher education faculty, adult educators, and trainers in business and healthcare.
