White Teachers in Urban Classrooms: Embracing Non-White Students' Cultural Capital for Better Teaching and Learning
Goldenberg, Barry M.
Urban Education, v49 n1 p111-144 Jan 2014
The racial "mismatch" between a non-White student public school population and a primarily White teaching force continues to be underexamined through an appropriate cultural lens. This literature review provides examples of how White teachers must properly recognize non-White students' actions and rhetoric in classroom settings as valuable cultural capital. By addressing how White teachers must reflect on their own race within the dominant school structure to close the opportunity gap, this literature review presents both a theoretical and a practical "call to action" for how White teachers in urban classrooms must critically rethink non-White students' cultural capital in the context of teaching and learning.
