DIVERSITYinEd.com — 22 — Spring Issue 2020 IN THE SPOTLIGHT Teaching the Way Students Learn Best by Caitlin Corrigan I n 2020, we are looking forward to seeing more prepared, professional teacher candidates from diverse backgrounds enter the classroom feeling proud of their path and ready to teach. The evidence is becoming clear: when students have opportunities to learn in a safe, structured back- ground with well-supported teachers from diverse backgrounds, everybody wins. We were impressed and inspired by a recent report published in the Learning Policy Institute. Authors Jacqueline Ancess, Bethany Rogers, DeAnna Duncan Grand, and Linda Darling-Hammond explore some best practices from a New York high school. The report, titled "Teaching the Way Students Learn Best: Lessons from Bronxdale High School," is worth a read in its entirety https://learningpolicyinstitute.org/prod- uct/social-and-emotional-learning-case-study-bronx- dale-report, and we are so grateful to have received permission to print the Executive Summary as part of our celebration of this year's commitment to be "Proud to Promote Diversity and Equity in Education." Please enjoy the read, then join us for a break- down on how the latest findings can help new teacher candidates prepare for a successful entry into the classroom.
