Gay (2000) also describes culturally responsive teaching as having these characteristics: • It acknowledges the legitimacy of the cultural heritages of different ethnic groups, both as legacies that affect students’ dispositions, attitudes, & approaches to learning & as worthy content to be taught in the formal curriculum • It builds bridges of meaningfulness between home & school experiences as well as between academic abstractions & lived sociocultural realities Gay (2000) also describes culturally responsive teaching as having these characteristics : • It uses a wide variety of instructional strategies that are connected to different learning styles • It teaches students to know & praise their own & each others’ cultural heritages • It incorporates multicultural information, resources, and materials in all subjects & skills routinely taught in schools.
