- Publisher's Summary
- This is the follow-up book to the Corwin 'best seller' "Using Equity Audits to Create Equitable and Excellent Schools". Whereas "Using Equity Audits" was written mainly for school leaders, this book, "Equity Audits for Teachers: Creating Equitable and Excellent Classrooms", focuses on teacher and classroom practices. Although school leaders have found the Equity Audits book useful, they have requested more strategies for teachers. They want a companion book they can give teachers and use in teacher study groups. This book is important because in this time of changing demographics and increased diversity, many teachers find that the strategies they have used in the past are successful with only some of the students in their classes. They want and need strategies that will assist them in being successful with all their students. This book will provide teachers with new strategies and skills that will fit diverse needs. The book will also include a discussion of the history of equity auditing in education found in civil rights work, curriculum auditing, and state accountability systems.
