2016: Susan McLaughlin

Culturally Engaging Instruction, a model that emerged from Susan McLaughlin’s 2012 dissertation, employs subtle cultural cues to improve student engagement. Field tested in her classroom and around her district, students learning under this method showed amazing results — anecdotal, qualitative and quantitative.

McLaughlin developed this successful teaching strategy to narrow, close, and even reverse historically pervasive achievement gaps among students from diverse backgrounds. McLaughlin is a member of Blue Grass Mensa.
