This type of pedagogy involves teachers actively working to close the gap between students’ home and school lives. To work toward this aim, teachers must “gain knowledge of the cultures represented in their classrooms, then translate this knowledge into instructional practice” (Villegas, 1991, p. 13). Culturally responsive pedagogy includes actively infusing multiple perspectives into lessons/ curricula, using knowledge of students’ backgrounds and cultural resources to create bridges to content, and engaging families in their children’s education (Villegas & Lucas, 2002).

This type of research produces simplistic accounts of very complex and multifaceted phenomena, such as teaching practice, that are in actuality comprised of contextually situated, historically contingent, and relationally produced processes mitigated through language, material conditions, and previous and anticipated life experiences.
