Cultural Literacy for the Common Core helps wrap the Common Core in a blanket of cultural insight and divergence that will help teachers begin to awaken the desire of all students to join the community of learners that will shape the future.”

Mary Kim Schreck, author and educational consultant

“What an outstanding and comprehensive resource! I couldn’t put it down. Bonnie M. Davis masterfully examines the issues involved in cultural literacy. An incredibly useful resource for educators as we transition to the Common Core.”

Ava Maria Whittemore, minority achievement coordinator, Yuma Frederick County Public Schools, Maryland

“This book is an outstanding resource that all educators must have as they continue their search for knowledge about the students they teach and how best to teach them.”

Sue McAdamis, adjunct professor for adult learning and professional development, Maryville University, Missouri

“In a time when terms like culture and culturally relevant have become cliché, Bonnie M. Davis brings meaning and authenticity to this important topic with her six-step framework. This book makes important connections between what we know is necessary for student success, such as the use of high-yield strategies, with what we often don’t focus on, making sure instruction is culturally relevant. Unfortunately, the significance of culture with initiatives like the Common Core is not often recognized, which makes Cultural Literacy for the Common Core all the more important and a must-read for teachers, principals, and district leaders.”

Sharroky Hollie, cofounder of the culture and language academy of success and assistant professor of teacher education, California State University, California
