This paper examines the classroom interactions between students and instructors of different cultural backgrounds and offers insights as to how instructors might maximize their effectiveness with diverse groups. Inspired by the lived experiences of an African-American graduate student in a department staffed predominantly by European-American faculty members, the paper calls upon instructors to create an environment conducive to learning by employing a variety of teaching strategies which acknowledge the unique learning styles of students.
