Teaching Children of Different Cultures in the Classroom: A Language Approach. Second Edition.
Cheyney, Arnold B.
Teaching within the context of individuality, desire, and emotion means that teachers must have an understanding of various cultures, the languages children speak, and the strengths the children possess. This second edition of the text "Teaching Culturally Disadvantaged in the Elementary School" is more inclusive of minority groups, moves into the preschool instructional area, and treats the intelligent and creative use of media. The first half of the book was complied to help the reader develop a depth of understanding of multicultural children and of the methods many teachers have found to be effective with them. The last half of the book, organized as a handbook of ideas, discusses language development, receptive skills, and expressive skills. The last two chapters list activities which can heighten classroom excitement by using various media and other equipment. An appendix contains quotations from teachers giving thoughts about children and sharing workable ideas. (JM)
