Culture and the Bilingual Classroom: Studies in Classroom Ethnography.
Trueba, Henry T., Ed.; And Others
The 13 papers are grouped into 2 sections: "General Theoretical and Methodological Issues," and "Microethnographic Studies of Minority Culture Children in the Classroom." Section I includes five papers which cover the following topics: approaches to inquiry in school-community ethnography which are qualitative, yet quantitative; the validity and importance of ethnography for bilingual education; ethnographic monitoring; culturally responsive education; ethnography as a way to achieve Lau Remedies II; and the collaborative relationship of the teacher and researcher in classroom research. Section II includes eight papers, grouped according to the population under investigation: Native Americans, Hawaiian Americans, Mexican Americans, Black Americans, and Puerto Rican Americans. The following topics are covered: cultural differences in the way an Odawa Indian teacher and a non-Indian teacher organize participation structures in the classroom; the social organization of behavior in getting ready for reading in an Alaskan Athabaskan classroom; a culturally responsive solution to teaching reading to Hawaiian children; ethnographic monitoring and awareness of a Chicano student's performance; the public schools, management systems, and minority students; use of metaphrasing by Black and White eighth grade students to structure classroom participation; social contexts for ethnic borders and school failure; and the potential contributions of anthropology to educational research.
