Researching Multicultural Classes: A Collaborative Approach.
Gorgorio, Nuria; Planas, Nuria
This paper discusses the adequacy of using a collaborative model as research approach for studying the dynamics of a multicultural mathematics classroom. The goal of the research is the analysis of the immigrant students' processes of adapting to a new cultural context, from their home and school culture to the school culture that hosts them, understanding the construct culture in its broadest sense. This study has shown the importance of involving in-practice teachers in researching crucial issues related to their day-to-day teaching. (Author/KHR)
