In this chapter, the current literature base involving the use of culturally relevant pedagogy (CRP) in elementary STEM classroom settings is reviewed. The review reveals three main categories of how CRP is used in classrooms. These categories are: student engagement and outcomes (SEO), instructional practices and dispositions (IPD), and curricular materials (CM). In the chapter, each of these categories is explained and practical examples are described. Finally, reflections on why some components of CRP, as revealed from the literature review, are enacted more or less frequently are discussed.
