Report on Teaching in Multi-Cultural/Multi-Ethnic Schools (1974-75).
Sikes, Melvin P.; Coe, Gerald Lynn
This is a report on two courses, one undergraduate and one graduate, which taught education majors, through films, discussions, book reviews, field trips, and community work, how to become master teachers skilled in reaching culturally different children. The report examines the purposes and content of the courses and concludes that they were successful. Student-written course evaluations are included which praise the course and the instructors. Racial balance among the students and participation of people dedicated to teaching were seen to create a productive situation. Outlines of the schedule of classes, reading lists, and subjects covered in each class session are included. The authors feel that students who are culturally different must be seen as having educational disadvantages as great as those with physical and emotional problems, and that it is important for educators to grasp the essentials of good teaching when dealing with the culturally different, as has been with the emotionally and physically disadvantaged.
