TEACHING THE CULTURALLY DIFFERENT.
MCCREARY, EUGENE
TEACHING PRACTICES USED SUCCESSFULLY AT THE SECONDARY LEVEL WITH CULTURALLY DEPRIVED CHILDREN ARE PRESENTED. STUDENTS SHOULD BE PROVIDED WITH OPPORTUNITIES THAT ALLOW FOR PARTICIPATION, ACHIEVEMENT, AND SUCCESS. THIS CAN BE DONE BY DIVERSIFYING LEARNING EXPERIENCES SO THAT STUDENTS OF ALL INTERESTS CAN DO THINGS THEY LIKE AND CAN DO WELL, BY DIVERSIFYING EVALUATION DEVICES, BY PROVIDING FOR MAXIMUM PARTICIPATION OF STUDENTS IN SCHOOL OPERATIONS, AND BY PUBLICIZING ALL KINDS OF STUDENT LIFE AND INTERESTS. MARKING POLICIES SHOULD MINIMIZE THE FEELING OF REJECTION CAUSED BY SOME GRADING PRACTICES. READING AND LANGUAGE SKILLS SHOULD BE DEVELOPED BY PROVIDING PERIODICAL EXCERCISES AND CLASS ACTIVITIES. LIBRARY USAGE, RESEARCH TECHNIQUES, AND ORAL AND WRITTEN LANGUAGE USAGE SHOULD ALSO BE PROVIDED. THE WORK SHOULD BE SUITED TO THE ABILITIES, SKILLS, AND RESOURCES OF THE STUDENTS. THE LEARNING SHOULD BE MADE RELEVANT TO THE LIFE EXPERIENCES, CIRCUMSTANCES, NEEDS, AND ASPIRATIONS OF THE STUDENTS. THE LEARNING EXPERIENCES SHOULD BE KEPT REALISTIC, IMMEDIATE, AND VIVID. THIS CAN BE DONE BY PROVIDING MODELS OF WORK AFTER WHICH STUDENTS COULD PATTERN THEIR OWN PERFORMANCE USING VARIED AUDIOVISUAL DEVICES ILLUSTRATING ABSTRACTIONS WITH ANECDOTES USING BOOKS DEALING WITH REAL PEOPLE IN REAL SITUATIONS AND HAVING GUEST LECTURERS, FIELD TRIPS, DEMONSTRATIONS, AND EXPERIMENTS. INTEGRATION AND INTERCULTURAL RESPECT SHOULD BE PROMOTED. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "INTEGRATED EDUCATION," ISSUE 13, FEBRUARY 1965.
