Evaluation of a Program Focusing on Teaching Strategies for Culturally Diverse Students.
Person, William A.; And Others
A critical challenge facing educators today is meeting the needs of culturally diverse school populations. Since 1989, Mississippi State University has provided a summer institute, Strategies for Instructing Culturally Diverse Students, in which selected Mississippi elementary and secondary teachers have identified strategies for addressing the educational needs of culturally diverse students. The study described in this paper was conducted to determine the extent to which institute participants have implemented strategies for working with culturally diverse students in classrooms and school districts. A sample of institute "graduates" (N=57) completed a questionnaire which provided demographic information, primary responsibilities, years of experience in education, gender, level of education, and race. The "graduates" also indicated the extent to which they had implemented strategies identified and studied in the institute. Preliminary results suggest that respondents have either implemented strategies, or have engaged in behaviors that are appropriate for positive learning opportunities to occur. The 25-item survey instrument, presenting average responses and standard deviations, is appended. (Contains 11 references.) (LL)
