Industry Reviews

"Bonnie has a wealth of experience across diverse settings, in diverse schools, and with many different ages of students, and this is clear throughout the manuscript. This text offers an enormous array of strategies that have been built over time and through many experiences. Educators who purchase her books are given a massive learning & experiential shortcut!" -- Christi Boortz, Grant Writer/Coordinator
"Its no-nonsense approaches to the needs of these students coupled with examples and vignettes which support these needs, provide a strong case and purpose for meeting the needs of these students. Educators can no long 'teach to the middle,' to do so is an injustice, and cannot continue." -- Deborah D. Wragge, Professional Services Coordinator
"If you are an educator who wonders, 'What else can I do to help my students of color?' Bonnie Davis has something for you. Be prepared to reflect on the importance of your own racial experience while you are introduced to strategy after strategy for working effectively across lines of race and culture." -- Graig Meyer, Coordinator, Blue Ribbon Mentor-Advocate Program
"Dr. Bonnie Davis' original text, How to Teach Students Who Don't Look Like You has been a valuable resource during my instruction of diversity. I look forward to the new edition and adding it to my syllabus." -- Betty Porter Walls, Assistant Professor
"This text 'fires up' educators by speaking from the soul to reach the heart - from the research to the engage the mind - and from the skillful hand to build the necessary expertise. Thank you for a guide to make the next step of our journey." -- Peggy Dickerson, University Field Supervisor
"I just love Bonnie's authentic approach at challenging educators to examine themselves while working towards building culturally responsive classrooms where kids from different cultures can achieve." -- Derrick Wallace, Administrator
"This book is a must-have for the teacher who wishes to self-examine their own belief systems and garner this information to become a balanced and fair teacher from the prospective of race." -- Bev Alfeld, Academic Performance Specialist
"Often in cultural discussions one race or culture is vilified, causing the reader to be offended and turned off of the book. How to Teach Students Who Don't Look Like You tackles difficult issues without condemnation and offers solid ideas that propel educators to reflect inward in order to impact their classroom and school cultures. The author is passionate and the reader leaves the pages desiring the same passion." -- Amanda Mayeaux, Master Teacher
"Bonnie Davis has updated a book that covers topics I haven't seen addressed before. She manages to convey that we are different, culturally, from the majority of students we teach, and that we need to recognize this and use it to our advantage. Ms. Davis's book is all about making relationships with students so that they are better able to do what they need to do in the classroom. Her firm but fair approach is refreshing and research based and proven to be successful in many classrooms around the country. This is apparent by the fact that Ms. Davis is hired by many districts as a consultant, to help individual schools succeed with many more of their students." -- Terri Ishmael, Assistant Principal
"How to Teach Students Who Don't Look Like You provides insight and provokes action. It challenges long held notions about teaching and learning while keeping it student centered. Dr. Davis understands what it means to be an educator and through her work, validates and affirms what it is we know is possible and how to be our best." -- Scott A. Thomas, Educational Equity Coordinator
"The conversation about race woven into the book is unique and definitely essential in order to effectively address the achievement gaps that are a function of race. Dr. Davis takes on a very volatile topic and is able to engage the reader without offending. Her blending of personal racial autobiographies with the courageous conversations research of Curtis Linton and Glenn Singleton is very effective. The vignettes and classroom situations help the reader understand how race plays out in our society and in our classrooms. The examples, vignettes, cases, stories, etc. will hook the readers just as they did me. Once I began reading the book, I could not put it down." -- Maria Whittemore, Minority Achievement Coordinator
