This is an excellent in-depth presentation on the subject of providing the proper type of assessment for the culturally diverse classroom. The examples used in the section on teacher preparation of assessment were easy to follow. The six-trait model made a lot of sense. Overall this is an exhaustive and comprehensive presentation of developing the proper type of assessment for the culturally diverse classroom.
