Educators learn from and about their students' culture, language, and learning styles to make instruction more meaningful and relevant to their  students' lives (Apthorp, D'Amato, & Richardson, 2003; Lee, 2003; Lipka, 2002).

Local knowledge, language, and culture are fully integrated into the curriculum, not added on to it (Demmert, 2001; Hollins, 1996).
A climate of caring, respect, and the valuing of students' cultures is fostered in the school and classroom (Cooper, 2002; Gay, 2000; Ginsberg & Wlodkowski, 2000; Kadson-Billings, 1994; Sheets, 1995; Tharp, 1982; Waxman & Tellez, 2002) Bridges are built between academic learning and students; prior understanding, knowledge, native language, and values (Conrad, Gong, Sipp,& Wright, 2004; Doherty, et al., 2003; Ginsberg & Wlodkowski, 2003).
School staff build trust and partnerships with families, especially with families marginalized by school in the past (Bryk & Schneider, 2002; Cooper, 2002; Demmert, 2001; Henderson & Mapp, 2002; Sosa, 1997; Trumbull, Rothstein-Fisch, Greenfield, & Quiroz, 2001; Young 1998). Staff members hold students to high standards and have high expectations for all students (Cooper, 2002; Hill, Kawagley, & Barnhardt, 2003; Sheets, 1995; Waxman & Tellez, 2002)
