Cases of Culturally Responsible Pedagogy: Reflecting on the Past and Present To Realign for the Future.
Huber, Tonya; Parscal, Jeannie N.
This document consists of workshop materials used during a paper/poster session at the Association of Teacher Educators (ATE) summer conference. Presenters modeled the use of case literature as a tool for teaching about culturally responsible pedagogy and effective instruction. The cases were developed from observations of and interviews with middle school teachers in a large metropolitan school district. The cases modeled a tenet of research findings on culturally responsible pedagogy: an active learning model in natural environments fostering cooperation and interdependence encourages development of self-esteem and maximizes learning for students regardless of differences related to culture and ethnicity, social status, gender, religion, home environment, genetic and biological factors, cognitive skills, learning styles, or personal experiences. Through role playing, participants were actively involved in analyzing case vignettes. The materials include a page of background information on culturally responsible pedagogy and two cases consisting of outlines, student opinions, a Hispanic teacher's journal, and pages of references.
