Teaching Multicultural Classes. 2nd Revised Edition.
Lewis, Marilyn; Taylor, Ray
The guide is designed to assist teachers in postsecondary education, particularly vocational education, with some students from language backgrounds other than English. It both offers suggestions for classroom organization and interaction and poses questions to stimulate teachers' examination of the processes at work in the learning situation. Sections address these topics: applying general principles of good teaching in a multicultural context; encouraging students to think; teaching students to ask questions; encouraging interactive reading; providing feedback; preparing students for examinations; organizing classroom seating and interaction; vocabulary development for new concepts; encouraging students to use English language; teachers' commonly asked questions; and wording classroom questions.
