Classnotes Podcast (August 3, 2017) With the quickly-changing dynamics across our communities, teachers often are facing the challenge of incorporating multicultural education without proper preparation.

Paula Martin Johnson, M.A., an IDRA education associate, presents three critical areas of professional development that school leaders need to be providing for their teachers to effectively deliver high-quality and inclusive instruction in 21st-century classrooms.

Paula is interviewed by Aurelio M. Montemayor, M.Ed., IDRA senior education associate. Show length: 14:30 min.
