dc.descriptionTeaching and Learning Department capstone project. EDUC 3680 Capstone Seminar. Dr. Kristen Neal. This paper describes the current battles in urban education such as the achievement gap, curriculum gap and opportunity gap. As a solution to these gaps, I proposed that urban teachers need to be culturally responsive and take on a critical literacy approach in their instruction. The paper describes what culturally responsive teaching is, then goes on to explain why critical literacy is important and the impact it can have on student success, both academically and in life as they become active citizens in society.en_US
