    How Can Educators Leverage Diversity Within Schools?
    (ASCD, 2016-03-28) LaCour, Misty
    Leveraging diversity in schools is about honoring, celebrating, and respecting our differences across cultures. Teachers must engage in culturally responsive teaching in order to leverage diversity within schools. In order to do this, we must have open conversations about diversity, both with other educators and with our students (Cruz, 2015). “When we learn more about who we are—and who students are—culturally, we’ll become more conscious of how we influence students” (Ginsberg, 2015).

    Closing the Excellence Gap for English Learners and Students of Color
    (2018-05-29) Nyberg, Julia; LaCour, Misty; Dees, Laura; Hansen, Laurie
    Currently, a gap exists in which English Learners (ELs) “are persistently underrepresented in advanced classes and in programs for students identified as gifted” (Coronado & Lewis, 2017, p. 238). While the number of ELs has increased in classrooms across the nation, the “excellence gap” has widened over recent years due to the underrepresentation of students of color in gifted programs. One strategy that school districts can implement to close the excellence gap and open the opportunity to support gifted programs for ELs and students of color is by providing a family engagement workshop which addresses the needs of underrepresented gifted students.
