PLANNING EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTION: DIVERSITY RESPONSIVE METHODS AND MANAGEMENT, Fourth Edition, fully equips readers to teach in ways that meet the needs of all students in today's diverse classroom. The four-part organization corresponds with a new framework for diversity responsive teaching that helps focus planning for diversity.

As readers use the book, they will find numerous resources and exercises that will both lay the foundation for their future work and prove useful as a tool that they can reference throughout their teaching careers.
