To Make a Difference: Teaching in the Inner City.
Cuban, Larry
This book is a personal account of teaching experience in the inner city school, as well as being an organized approach to improving teaching methods. On the schools and the teachers are placed the responsibility for teaching and for reasonable academic achievement of students. The underlying educational philosophy is that the individual teacher must match the materials and methods of instruction to the student. The teacher's role in developing his or her own units for classroom work and types of units which have been successful are emphasized. Chapters that deal with the teacher as liaison with the community, as instructional decision maker, and as curriculum-developer suggest a different style and provide a different substance to classroom teaching. Also discussed are the different learning styles of children, workable approaches, and specific problems such as race, discipline, and expectations. (Author/JW)
