In fact, this powerful search engine can offer lots of great services, apps and features that aren’t on many people’s radar.

The Bright Side team will help you to uncover some of them. Here are 15 of the most useful Google apps that you probably didn’t know existed.

Converging Recommendations for Culturally Responsive Literacy Practices: Students with Learning Disabilities, English Language Learners, and Socioculturally Diverse Learners
GwynethJoness insight:

Another important article from

TLDR

Abstract: 

"This study examines culturally responsive pedagogy across the fields of special education, multicultural literacy education, and teaching English language learners. A systematic review of recommendations identified culturally responsive practices in five key areas: dialogue, collaboration, visual representation, explicit instruction, and inquiry. Educators are encouraged to adopt a critical and responsive stance that incorporates students' cultural knowledge and lived experiences when implementing these recommendations. Creating classrooms that promote culturally responsive and effective instruction is grounded in the definition of literacy as a social practice and leads to more equitable learning opportunities in all areas."

While I understand a publisher's need to make a profit, they are seriously damaging their own credibility as well as infringing upon the public's Freedom to Read rights. Libraries have always stood for free access to information and reading. Shame on publishers.
