Standards-Based Teaching in Culturally Diverse Schools. Viewers' Guide.
Clair, Nancy; Adger, Carolyn Temple
This videotape and viewer's guide kit is designed for use in a teachers' study group that is part of a comprehensive professional development plan. It encourages teachers to critique and inquire about standards and standards-based teaching in their diverse schools and classrooms. The kit was designed based on a 3-year project in which researchers and educators explored issues related to implementing standards with English language Learners. The 48-minute VHS videotape includes "Teachers' Views" (which focuses on standards-based teaching and learning) and "Professional Development" (which illustrates a professional development approach that supports teachers as they implement standards with English language learners). Each part of the video is designed to stand alone. The viewers' guide provides resources and suggestions for using the video in professional development settings. Its five sections include the following: "Introduction"; "How To Use the Video and the Viewers' Guide"; "Discussion Questions for the Video"; "Sample Outline for Study Group Sessions"; and "Supplementary Materials for Using the Video" (unit and lesson plans, professional development strategies and tools, video transcript, guidelines for starting a study group, teachers' reflections on changes in practice, and resources for further study). (Contains 12 references.) (SM)
