Publishers are looking for help as they work with challenges posed by increasingly diverse student bodies. We have developed a program to help address these needs. Our staff has created a living rubric with which your materials are evaluated. Our team performs a linguistic analysis of the content of your teaching materials, textbooks and potential adoptions to highlight DEI concerns regarding issues of race, bias, gender, sex, ability, socio-economic status, national origin, etc. Our results are rendered in precise, easily understood language that your district can use to make informed decisions about the materials you are using. To learn more about our work with textbook publishers, please fill out the following form.
Your editorial team may require deeper engagement that a qualified SME in the discipline under review can bring to the project in order to fully understand the nuances specific to that discipline that may be beyond the parameters of the standard DEI review process. (optional sentence-The enhanced review will specifically examine these issues and will provide exactly this feedback.) This SME will offer subject matter-specific commentary and pedagogically applicable suggestions to the discipline’s editorial team.
