Meet the needs of ALL students using the proven approach of cultural proficiency!

Achieving cultural proficiency in schools may seem like a daunting task, but research has proven that by developing positive, productive responses to the diverse populations in a school community, the benefits are wide-reaching and impressive: enhanced ability of students to learn and teachers to teach, students prepared to find their own places in the global community, positive school-community relations, and students prepared for outstanding citizenship.

Designed to provide staff developers and educational leaders with all the necessary materials to plan a workshop or study group around the best-selling book, Cultural Proficiency, Second Edition, by Randall B. Lindsey, Kikanza Nuri Robins, and Raymond D. Terrell, this Facilitator's Guide features key components from the book that masterfully instructs educators how to:  

  • Avoid unintentional cultural or ethnic slights
  • Understand how historical distrust affects present-day interactions
  • Accept that each culture finds some values and behaviors more important than others
  • Use the diversity of your school community as an educational resource
The Facilitator's Guide to Cultural Proficiency, Second Edition, helps you effectively lead others through dialogue, reflection, and application of the work of these authors in a number of settings and group sizes. Now you can help others begin changing the context in their schools and districts!
