Cultural Patterns in Urban Schools: A Manual for Teachers, Counselors, and Administrators.
Lohman, Joseph D., Ed.
The purpose of this book is to help teachers understand and accept the subcultures from which an increasing number of their students come. The content of this book was developed from the experience of many teachers working at the elementary, junior-high, and senior-high school levels. The teachers were drawn from schools with a large proportion of minority youth and were identified by their colleagues as having shown sensitivity, insight, and skill in engaging alienated youth. They were surveyed through a series of panel discussions and group interviews conducted during the course of the school year, 1963-64. During these sessions, problem situations--partially based on the teachers' own experience--were presented in such a way as to elicit discussion and analysis of various coping strategies. The book is divided into five parts. Every part includes an introduction and three stories, each of which is followed by a set of questions and a commentary. Each part concludes with a number of digests from relevant social science readings. (Editor/JM)
