Monday Morning Mentor Series

Research shows that when students feel more represented in the classroom they perform better. Unfortunately the opposite is shown to be true, that when students feel under represented they perform worse. This poses a problem of how to make all students feel represented in a multicultural classroom? Instructor Kate Sweeney of Columbia University discusses Culturally Responsive Teaching Techniques Can I Use to Improve Learning in this week's edition of the MMMS.
