The ideas, tools, and example lessons found in the book will appeal to teachers, administrators, and pre-service teachers. The book stresses the importance of equity for all students in the classroom setting. The examples are applicable whether the instructor is in the hybrid, virtual, or face-to-face classroom setting. Dr. Stembridge’s purpose for writing the book is to communicate why culturally responsive education is the framework for equity, why equity and pedagogy should be the central focus of schools, and to describe specific elements found within culturally responsive education. The book continues along the lines of Geneva Gay’s research (2000) that revealed that meeting the needs of culturally different students was best achieved through culturally responsive education.
