High School Students' Exposure to Diversity in an Urban Teaching Academy and Their Conceptions of Its Place in Future Practice
Fletcher, Edward C., Jr.
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v46 n4 p597-619 Nov 2014
This study explored the meaning high school Urban Teaching Academy participants ascribed to the critical term of "diversity" and how that translated into shaping their philosophies on how to address the issue in their future classrooms. Findings indicated that perceptions of diversity and its place in the curriculum were most likely related to the emphasis of the concept in the program. Thus, those participants who were taught by a teacher who included more discourse on the topic of diversity embraced a culturally relevant pedagogical stance. Whereas, those participants taught by a teacher who discussed diversity through the lens of differentiated instruction adopted a color-blind perspective.
