Teaching Multicultural Classes. Multicultural Handbooks I.
Lewis, Marilyn; Taylor, Ray
The handbook of classroom techniques and activities is designed for teachers in postsecondary institutions who have adult students for whom English is a second language. The underlying philosophy is that the learning experience of these students is not extremely different from those of native English-speaking students, and that their needs and experiences differ in degree, not in kind. The guide addresses these issues in the multicultural classroom context: applying general principles of teaching (explaining the points of the lesson, motivating students, involving students, checking understanding, providing a variety of learning experiences); encouraging students to think; teaching students to ask questions; interactive reading; providing feedback; preparing students for examinations; organizing the classroom; making meaning clear; encouraging students to use new language; and asking questions. Contains six references. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
