Leading With Diversity: Cultural Competencies for Teacher Preparation and Professional Development

As the student population in our schools becomes increasingly diverse, many teachers need professional development to build cultural competencies-the skills and awareness related to issues such as culture, language, race, and ethnicity. To address this need, Leading With Diversity provides current research-based information on cultural competencies that will help inform the design of professional development. This resource is designed for higher education, state-, and district-level educators and professional developers who are preparing teachers to work with students from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. This publication was developed in collaboration with Pacific Resources for Education and Learning (PREL).
